This makes me so happy. It is such an inspiration to see how far people have come. I may not be running anywhere near an elite level, but it is amazing to look back at where I started 6 years ago and see real, tangible improvements over time. When I started running in high school I was running 26 minute 5ks. This past weekend I competed in my last collegiate cross country race, and completed the 6k course in 24:46 - 1000 meters longer yet over a minute faster than my modest high school beginnings. Even though my collegiate team experience is over, I am a runner for life and I plan on continuing to improve and push myself for as long as I can.
