So…I did a thing. I signed up for 7th grade athletics.
Compared to 6th grade, 7th grade is pretty hard. Especially in athletics! P.E. was so much easier; you walked, you sat, you went to your next class…ha. When the choice was given, I chose athletics because I wanted a chance to run track and also try out for soccer.
At the time, I was not aware of the work that I would have to do to get in shape and do my best. Things are different now, we run in heat, through mud, and around the field, over and over and over.
I am usually exhausted after practice and I’m glad it is my last class of the day. I’m going to push through and try my best to be the best. Yes, it is something different and it is a change but like they say not all change is bad. Right? I’ll do whatever it takes to get better at sports even if it means I have to change certain things or practice even harder.
I think I will adapt pretty well though to this change in activities. At first I thought I didn’t belong in athletics but the more and more I try, I get better at it. As the old saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try again.”
GOTTA BLAST!!! ~ Kelli W.
