Biker discovers mountain of lessons
My final year at WHS has been a spectacular one.
I have loved to explore new things since my childhood, and during my senior year of high school, I participated on the Mountain Biking Club. While not an official sport recognized by the school district, we did participate in some school events including the 2015 lip dub and wearing our jerseys to school to show our pride.
Throughout the fall season, I participated in six different Ohio Interscholastic Racing League races, including the state championship at Mohican State Park in Loundonville.
My experiences while biking have taught me much. First of all, I learned it is important for me to get out of my comfort zone. Also, I have learned to take more and bigger risks for bigger rewards.
I have discovered I can, and should, learn from my mistakes and never underestimate myself. These lessons have taught me to laugh about things that do not truly matter, rather than cry over spilt milk.
Mountain biking has revealed several new lessons to me, even after riding for less than a year. Most importantly, I learned I can tackle any new adventures in life.
I plan on taking, and using these lessons in my future, as I head off to college in the fall.
