My name is Ryan Hines, an 17 year old high school student who hardworking and determined in all that I do. In a few short months I am off to Middle Tennessee State University on a golf scholarship and to major in sports science. My favorite activities often are not the most healthy and could result in the major problem in our society, which is obesity. To get a quick start on physical fitness, my senior project is preparing and running a half marathon.
When I first started training for my senior project in the fall I wondered why so many people become bored with becoming physically fit. Learning that our nation is in the top 10 for most obese population in the world, I knew it was from lack of motivation. So, to keep myself in line I created a training calendar, that included workout days, hydration, and rest.
Overall my senior project is training for a half marathon. Along with running and eating correctly, most of it was learning proper resting and stretching methods. Every day I had to push myself a little further in distance ran. The biggest challenge overall from that was pacing myself during the run and working out constantly
My topic and research paper directly relate to my interests in becoming either an athletic trainer or personal fitness instructor. I have learned a lot about time management with balancing school, golf practice, and training. Along with that I've learned more about work ethic and self-motivation.
Finally I have thoroughly enjoyed training for my senior project. The experience has given me helpful tips that I will use for the rest of my life, as well for anybody who is trying to become more physically fit.
Sincerely, Ryan Hines
