Life on Track.

I spent some time at the first place I fell in love with sports. Where I spent nearly a decade of my life.

This is the place where I learned self-discipline, endurance, and enhanced my mental strength. So you see when I go hard for any game I’m watching, it’s because I know the gumption and confidence it takes to stand at the starting line waiting for the gun to go off, I can identify with the feeling of the rush before the quarterback calls the play, and I can certainly feel the racing heartbeat of every player at tip-off or before the batter swings for the pitcher’s pitch. I know what it takes to leave your heart on the practice field training your mind to perfection. I know the sacrifice and risk needed to carry the W home.

I am sports; my mental training is the source of it. I once ate, bred, and slumber’d in it. Understand that when I watch, I don’t sit in the stands or on the bench, I’m in the game. #Vicariously

The one important thing I learned from track in 2nd grade when I realized I had something, is that “On the track it’s you and YOU (your mind). If you tell yourself you don’t have it, you don’t. But if you tell yourself you do, watch what happens. Somebody will show up. Sports, more specifically track, is a mental challenge against yourself. Conquer the mind, rule the body.” #TrackAlum #Open400#4by4Relay #200 #MileRelay #HighJump#DHSTrackTeam #SunriseTrackTeam#DunnellonMiddleTrackTeam #MyFirstLove

Throughout this quirky, rich, and mysterious life of mine, I genuinely love to 'share' my experiences as a learning tool. I thought, what better way to track my level of growth than by sharing my experiences and the lessons learned thereof, than in my blog?
