Each and every county meet along with regional meets, I placed in every one of my events. My first and foremost favorite event was the one hundred meter dash. Therefore, I wanted to win it all for just that event. Of course the other events were important to me too, but since I began running track in elementary school, the one hundred meter had been my event of “perfection”. The end of the season approached and it was time to reveal who made it to states.
Here I was, thinking I could join and just win a bunch of medals. I would just run fast, no even caring about how my teammates did in the race. I thanked coach Belo for taking the time to explain the sport and what he expected from me. He said it was no trouble, and that I joined cross country. And now here I am, two years later.
My team and I were going to play St. Rita, a battle we had persistently prepared for since the last game of our sophmore year. The sun was beating on my pads, radiating the heat to make practice seem even worse. I was exhausted and looking forward to the end of my last sweat, pouring practice for the week. Our team was repetitively executing plays to make sure they were like second nature to us on friday. The coach yelled, "Last Play!"
As I drove around Kingston it seemed like every runner was out running and they were actually smiling. Yep, it bugged me that I blew off a run, but I figured it was just one day, then two days. You get the picture. And it's funny, because I couldn't stop thinking about when I'd finally get out for a run; it started to consume my thoughts.And, that's what I love about marathon great Bill Rodgers' quote at the top of this column. Anyone who exercises on a daily basis will truly understand this quote.

By the way, its always a good idea to talk to your doctor before starting any workout program. Now, I know you are dying to get to the lifting weights part but this teen workout has TWO parts and this part is just as important. If you want to get ripped so you can see your 6-pack abs, you need burn off some fat, and to do this you need to spend at least 30min a day, preferably an hour or more, playing! Playing soccer, playing basketball, playing football, skateboarding, biking. Playing sports is a very important part of this teen workout because the running and jumping is going to be your leg workout, in the weight workout we are not going to do legs.
It turned out to be a great day for me. Not only did I come in first, but I also won by a school yard mile. All the kids were very surprised that I, a short guy, had won the race. The second example of situational irony that happened in my life is when I was coming of age to drive. I was counting down the days until I could obtain my drivers license.

Bolt has suffered from many injuries resulting from too much training, affecting is performance on the track.

Nevertheless, once they achieved this challenge, they will surely rose like a phoenix from the ashes, which undoubtedly strengthen their ability to cope with the stresses and strains in the future. Here is a personal example of mine. As a member of primary school sports team, I used to take part in numbers of running competition. At the beginning, I was so nervous that my legs couldn't help shaking.
