In the space provided below, please elaborate on one of your activities (extracurricular, personal activities, or work experience)(150 words or fewer).
For me, Cross Country has been one of the most exhilarating and worthwhile experiences throughout high school. The sport has truly taught me how to push myself to the limit. I know that no matter how tired I am and how much I want to give up and quit that I still have something left inside. This knowledge has not only helped me achieve success in running, but also in the classroom. In my junior and senior years, our team won the state championship. All the while, I have been able to maintain a Summa Cum Laude GPA in school. Cross Country has truly been an integral part of my life since my freshman year in high school. I have learned to push myself beyond what I ever thought I could do and thus gained a "can-do" attitude for other activities important in my life.
