Throughout my life I have enjoyed running, playing sports, challenging myself, and generally contending for a prize even if the winner just gets bragging rights. Growing up I got the opportunity to play competitive softball and therefore it became my favorite team sport. I also loved competing in sprint and mid-distance track and field races and relays.
Now that I am older I don’t compete as often but I do enjoy Ultimate Frisbee, yoga, rock climbing and running (including participation in at least one race per year). To this day, I am often excited at the possibility of competition but I try to avoid letting it consume me and be my only focus. In other words, I try to have fun and be a good sport.
