My name its Emma ,Running has been my best guide through life but it took a while to reveal itself. I started in a very small team where I was my own competition, without a partner to train with because I was too fast. What kept me going was my family, they knew how much potential I had. No matter how many times they told me I was good at it, I wasn't pursuing it for myself. Then came highschool, I entered the track team and finally found myself loving the sport a little more only because there was one girl faster than me. Eventually that girl graduated and the reality of training alone again brought me to my downfall. It slowly began to take control of my mind, keeping me away from what was ahead of me. The phrase “I can’t do it” was my favorite thing to say. Every time it came out of my mouth it became more attached to me. Two years later is when I finally accepted that I had everything I needed to challenge myself and stopped looking for things around me. That decision is what pushed me to place second in the state of Florida. Crossing the finish line reminiscing on the challenges and lessons learned. I wasn’t just crossing the finish line, I was leaving those mental barriers that had kept me from enjoying the journey as much as the destination
