How did Landsharks help prepare you for a successful future in Cross Country or Track & Field?

Landsharks taught me how to be a gracious competitor, something I think that every athlete should understand.  At 9 years old, I learned how to be competitive but alsow how to respect my competition and that's a Landshark lesson that has served me well all the way into college athletics.

What do you value most from your time as a Landshark?

Landsharks was where I first began to love running.  It's such a fun and healthy environment to learn about the sport and it was the first place I realized that I had a passion for running and wanted to take it seriously.  Landsharks was such a great introduction into the world of competitive running and I give it a lot of creit for the success I've had.

What is your favorite Landsharks memory?

I loved all the trips I got to take with my Landshark frinds and teammates to compete in races.  Because of the races we qualfied for, I got to see Chicago, Boston, Indianappolis, Salt Lake City, and so many other cool palces that I wouldn't have had an excuse to go to otherwise at that age.  And of course I always had so much fun playing in the hotel pools after the races with my friends.  I have such great memories from those Landshark trips!
