Goals

May 16, 2013

Not everyone who ever runs track will be a sectional champion. Very few even become conference champions, so what keeps them going? What are their goals? I am sure all of them start out dreaming of those big wins, but reality sets in so they have to reset their goals. The good coaches need these kids to keep a program going, and they need these runners in reserve when someone is injured. Most of these young athletes will set a realistic goal for themselves and work their tails off to achieve that goal. In doing so, they may even go above that goal because they worked so diligently. Some of my fondest memories are of just such kids. One girl worked four years to reach a personal time record for herself in the 3200-meter run. In her last meet as a high school student, she not only broke the time she had set for herself but got a ribbon as well. I can guarantee that ribbon meant more to her than almost any other ribbon won that day or maybe that season. Not only did she run four years for me, but her attitude rubbed off on other runners with more talent than she had, and they reached levels they probably would not have reached on their own. Oh, yes, I gave her a letter because she truly earned it! The world would be so much better if everyone had such an attitude and used it in their every day activities.
