Why I Got Started

After senior track season, I was semi-disappointed to how the season ended. I was always looked at as "that skinny kid". The whole season I was sore and not running my best, and I attribute this to not training properly before the season started.

In the end we still broke a school record in the 4x200 relay, and I placed 6th in the district in the 200-meter dash. I thought I may want to run track in college, and I was offered to try out for the team at Cal Poly, but decided to stay closer to home and go to UT at Austin.

I emailed the track coach there with some times, and he called and left a message about wanting me to tryout for the team. The day after the district meet, since I didn't qualify for regionals in any open or relay events like I did my junior year, I immediately hit the gym to train for trying out for a college team.

I had no idea what I was doing, I worked every muscle group every day, yet still made some progress. In August before I moved up to Austin, I called the coach about when I would get my chance to try out for the team, and he informed me that my spot had been filled already. I was disappointed, but at the same time not.

I realized that lifting weights, working out, and training were what I really enjoyed doing. Ever since, I have been eating right and training right and seeing much better results.

I have no aspirations to ever be a true bodybuilder, but I do love working my body to its full potential.
