Despite all of my athletic accomplishments, I lost more than I won. There were a lot of times that I felt like throwing in the towel and giving up. The greatest lesson I learned is how to persevere and this lesson really prepared me for life after track. Overnight stories are rarely true because there’s a lot more that people don’t hear. We may see a highlight film but it doesn’t show the little moments that define a person’s career. Those were my many moments of truth.
