I’ve done a couple of talks this fall to different teams/groups. It is so rewarding to influence others to believe in themselves, have that ‘go get ’em’ attitude, and chase goals they’re passionate about.
After one talk at a high school, I got the nicest note. Hope they don’t mind me reposting here, it really made my day:
“Just to let you know, I was at grocery store this pm and a parent of varsity member on the girls team said after your talk all she could talk about was you, running and setting her sights high to run CC in college. This parent thought that her daughter’s confidence has shot up tremendously in the last few weeks and felt that your presentation was a significant part of it going up.Having one student/athlete feel this way, I’m sure there are others and that it will be contagious.”
