Champions are not born,
Champions are made.
This was the saying on the back of our summer training T-shirts as we prepared for the cross country season. We had set a goal to be conference, regional, and State champions. We knew we would have to be in excellent shape, therefore it was imperative that we trained all summer long. Through the discipline of long hot summer miles, our bodies, minds, and friendships were strengthened. We were committed to do our best, not for ourselves, but for the team.
Our team became conference champions, regional champions and third-place team in the state. We had pushed ourselves, And pushed each other, to become champions. Success was a great feeling but it was the deep bonds of friendship that made our cross country team champions forever
Cross country is an incredible sport that offers the opportunity to strengthen your body and your mind in ways that you may have thought were impossible. And it creates friendships that will last a lifetime.
I hope you set your goals high this year to become a champion.
