The bond I have with my team helps me push myself to do better and try harder. I want the girls to see how dedication to the sport leads to improvement and success. I love encouraging my teammates and I want to see then succeed in every way possible,
Do you think indoor season is a good prep for outdoor, or is it a completely different feeling?
I do think that indoor track season is a perfect way because you are already in shape and have a bond with the team and it is just great practice as well.
How do your coaches inspire you?
I love my coaches the inspire me to “MOVEEE’ every day and strive to reach my goals and tp never give up.
What helps you mentally prepare for a race?
Personally what I have to do to mentally prepare for a race is to first eat well, then think about how I am going to pace myself depending on how many meters I am about to run. I focus my breathing then I am ready to race knowing I have the most supportive team by my side.
