So we ended up running over the course of 3 days (66 hours total) and finishing with a 45 stretch from Watkins Glen that took us all day and night. The point of a senior project is to take the most important and meaningful things that you have learned at LACS and apply them to a project that will demonstrate your learning and growth as an individual. We decided to do this because much like high school it required planning, hard work and perseverance to get through it. Our run also represented a risk that is taken in order to get to a better place in life in that the completion of our journey was certainly not guaranteed. I was inspired to run because of the growth that I have experienced running for IHS and I wanted to take it a step further. I like to compete against others but this was a new competition against myself and I was not sure I was going to win. In the end we felt amazing and would encourage anyone to go out and do the same because you will be changed mentally and emotionally for the better!
I ran the 800 meter dash and Niall ran the steeple chase. Also we started in Bath NY at a community called PeaceWeavers and ran directly back to Eco Village.
