People who have been an inspiration to me include:

My Parents, coach Aaron Lauck, and coach Mike Louden

Because: My parents for loving and supporting me and teaching me to be a kind person. Coach Lauck and Louden for teaching/encouraging me to be the best runner I can be.

Lately, I have been reading: Resources for my senior paper.

My advice to parents: Get your kids to be involved in sports, activities, and clubs so they will make new friends and have fun along the way.
