Acceptance Speech

Six Things You Don't Know About Me.

1. I CANNOT climb anything. I've never been able to climb fences, and when I was little, like 8 or 10 or something like that, I was climbing a tree and my foot got stuck between two branches and I was stuck up there for several hours. I haven't climbed a tree since, lol.

2. During my time as a high school "athlete", I shared the field with two current professional athletes. a) My senior year, we lost our opening round football playoff game to Jonathon Stewart, who went on to start at the University of Oregon, and is currently playing for the Carolina Panthers. After the game one of my teammates happened have a magazine that Stewart was on the cover of, and he got him to autograph it, good times. b) When I was on the track team, one of the teams in our league, Skyview high school, happened to have a Javelin thrower by the name of Kara Patterson. Obviously I didnt compete directly against her, since she's a girl and all, but my team competed against her. She has won back to back U.S. championships in the Javelin, competed in the 2008 Beijing olympics, and recently signed a sponsorship deal with Asics. I sucked as an athlete, but at least I can say I shared the fields of play with some good ones.

3. I'm actually a fairly boring person, meaning that I'm finding it difficult to come up with 6 interesting facts about me.

4. In my "academic career" I've done research papers on a wide variety of topics. Ranging from the "effects of youth participation in sports" for my junior paper in high school, and Creatine, and Nitric Oxide (NO2) in college, to fuel efficient, hybrid, and other alternative vehicles for my senior paper in high school. Like I've mentioned a few times on here, I've always considered myself to be a pretty good writer, as have a lot of the teachers I've had. I enjoy writing, and I've always thought that I write better when it just comes out, without a lot of planning or anything.

5. I love sports, football, basketball, track, they're all awesome. Sports are the reason that I wanted to get into fitness in the first place, not because I thought it'd make me into a super athlete or anything, but because I thought it could lead to a future career of coaching. Whether it be coaching a sport, or an event, or a position, or if its just being a strength coach, that is a major goal of mine. The main thing I want to do is to work with primarily high school athletes and students. However, I'd also like to open up a athletic/sports training facility, and possibly use that to create a program for students as well. However with that said, right at this point, I really have no clue how I'm going to be able to afford to go back to school to get the rest the education I'll need to be able to accomplish all of that. And that scares me and makes me think I wont be able to do any of the things I want to do in life.

6. Being as how I only have 7 people whom I absolutely know read my blog, the next step of this award is fairly simple.

The 7 people I pass this on to are::::::: Chris, even though thats probably against the rules, Jack, although I'm pretty sure that you've been given this already, Emmett, FitGal, Stephanie, Lisa, and BVar.
