This is hilarious!
Yes, they are sadists like that.
Sometimes we need them to be. Nevertheless, we love them!
When one hears about student athletes, what comes to mind? "Wow! You are so popular all over the campus! Your life must be really cool!"
If you ask me, popularity and coolness are about 1% of it.
Being a student is tough because it requires so much time and dedication. Well, double that up and that equals to what we, student athletes go through.
We appreciate the admiration. But whatever status we have, we attribute it not to any privileged position but to pure hard work.
Before any physical activity, it is highly recommended that a warm up exercise is done.

I personally prefer track shoes or spikes when competing because I feel that the lightness and grip really help me go faster.
The good thing is, there are a lot of options available on the market today. You can find the best track spikes for your need regardless of your budget.
I suggest you give it a shot now. Just a little practice and you will definitely feel the difference on the track.
I can relate 100%!
When I am running, its as if I enter a different state. All of a sudden, I am unaffected by external factors.
Don't you wish we can apply this to other aspects of life, too? That with a snap of a finger, we can focus on what matters most?
Unfortunately, in reality, there are a lot of distractions in our everyday life. And it will take time and determination to learn how to prioritize and focus. I hope that my training will help me do just that.
