Nathan Devine 

Bullitt Central 

What was your most memorable meet and why?

 My most memorable meet would have to be Conference because I got my PR and finally overcame the stage fright I got when I ran in a race.

Where did you face your biggest competition?

I faced my biggest competition at Bernie Keene, not because of the other teams but because I ate some bad food before the race and so I did bad. The whole race Kevin was behind me, so I was trying to make sure he didn't beat me.

Out of all of your high school accomplishments which stands out the most and why?

My greatest high school accomplishment be getting my 18:50 PR because I had to get over a lot to finally get my best time.

If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running career in high school?

I would've joined the team a long time ago, not just my senior year.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

The most difficult obstacle to overcome was my anxiety before every race because it held me back from performing at my best.

What will you miss the most?

I will miss the early morning practices and van rides.

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

My advice for younger athletes would have to be don't give up no matter what, your best runs will be the ones that you didn't choose to quit on. Also, don't make excuses

What are your post-high school or college plans?

My post high school plans are to go to JCTC for their Maintenance Mechanic Program and get an apprenticeship job. Then go into aircraft maintenance. 

Who would you like to say thank you to?

I would like to say thank you to everyone on the team for being the best team mates and friends I've ever had. I would mainly like to thank Isaac who taught us not only how to run but how to be men.
