What was your most memorable meet and why?

My most memorable meet was Campbellsville Last Chance Meet because at that race was when I set my Personal Record. The boys team was the only one that went to that meet so it was something unique. Everyone ran their best times of the season, therefore we were all happy. 

Where did you face your biggest competition?

My biggest competition was at the 2A State meet this year. It was just me running against a bunch of other individual runners and teams. I had no one in my team so made it difficult since that had never happened to me. 

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

Making it to state every year that I ran across Country because to me that's something that not a lot of runners get to do. 

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

I would go back to freshman year and start running Cross Country then. Since I only ran for three years I would've like to run one more year.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

The most difficult obstacles for me were trying to get in running shape. Not running before high school really affected me into getting in shape. I had to go through all the pain and learn how to endure it and how to run a good race. 

What will you miss the most?

I will definitely miss running with my teammates. That was something that I will never forget and I will forever miss

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

Running is something that you can hate and love at the same time so never give up and always have fun no matter what. 

What are your post-high school or college plans?

I plan on running in college and graduate with a bachelors degree in computer information systems.

Who would you like to say thank you to?

I would like to thank my teammates for always believing in me no matter what and my parents for always supporting me in everything I do especially in running and to my coach for always pushing me to my limits and helping me get the best out of me in every meet.
