    This is what we must live by. My parents are really pushing me to do certain things that I don't want to do. If I don't try what I want to do then I'll never know if I could have been good at it. People can help you make your choices by influencing you but you are the one that must make the decisions. This was told to me by a very inspiring P-ville track coach. I just want to tell him thank you so much for being there for my highlights, my grief's, my ups, and downs. You'll never know how much I appreciate you!
