So today I have solidified my decision to not swim this year.
I talked to my swim coach personally and discussed it with him and he was surprisingly supportive of my decision, but we both agreed that I had to do what was best for me, and it just so happens that I am and hopefully always will be a runner because it’s what I love to do and it’s what I am passionate about. It was an extremely hard decision, but I’m really glad I went to talk to him. Thank you Coach Steve for all of the amazing years, it really taught me what it means to be an athlete and a quality human being in general. Also, for my fellow seniors: I’m sorry it had to be this way, I’m going to miss suffering with you guys but I know all of you will do amazing this season no matter what.
Well, with that now in the past I now am going to push into running even further and hopefully prepare myself for track and beyond into college. All I can pray for is that I stay injury free. An injury would be the worst case scenario. Wish me luck
