I am attending FHSU for a couple reasons. First and foremost it was a school I could see myself
going to. Some schools that I visited were very nice but just didn't have the same feel. Second,
it was a place I felt where I could focus on my running and schoolwork. The fact that it is in Hays
allows me to get away from some of the distractions present in the larger metropolitan areas.
Third, the cross country/track teams are pretty similar to the one I've been on in high school.
The training philosophies and attitudes are basically the same. Finally, I thought that the people
I'd be interacting with most while I was on campus fit me better than at other schools. I could
see myself on the cross country team at FHSU but not at PIttsburg State or Wash U.
In my free time, I'm usually all about sports. I'm either playing them, watching them or
discussing them. Other than that I'm usually hanging out with my friends or reading about
current events and issues.
