This part of the run is not difficult for me, which is good because my mind is already focused on the cliff that I know is about 100 feet down the ridge and 50 feet on my left (north). Waiting for my turn at the top, I had lots of time to sit and think about what I was about to do, igniting my nerves and adrenaline, making my body feel numb. I ski to my spot above the cliff, and the iconic House Rock looks like it always does, almost like a fifty foot diving board that will shoot you out half-way down the rest of the mountain. I stop right above the point of no return. I must choose to hit the cliff or not. There is no turning back once I move from this spot.
Physical education classes are not enjoyed by all, in fact, some students do their best to get out of the class each day, but without this class, students would sit in school for seven hours a day with the only exercise being walking from class to class. While changing clothes and possibly getting sweaty may not seem productive for students who have spent an hour doing their hair, or feel awkward changing in front of others, this class provides positive ways of fighting obesity, releasing energy, retaining more academically, and learning discipline. Thus, students should be required to take physical education courses in high school.

how long does the Iditarod trail sled dog race take to finish? where does it go? what's with all those dogs? these are all questions you might have about the Iditarod.
The course started in the woods and had a short distance walk/sprint and then exited the woods and came to the first obstacle of the day, Berlin Walls, which on Sunday even though it rained a little during the night, was still covered in lots of mud. The course then continued on for a little bit and made came to Mud Mile 2.0, I enjoyed this
Have you ever heard about the Iditarod?The Iditarod is very important to mushers.The dogs pull the Iditarod along.The mushers can’t compete if their dogs get hurt.The Iditarod is a significant event because it shows the history of Alaska, It preserves the trail,it shows respect for all those who died carrying the disease cure,and it saves the sled dog cutler.
The Iditarod “...would violate animal cruelty laws...in 38 states and the District of Columbia. Of course, Alaska has no such law” (“Dogsled Racing”). The Iditarod is a race in which dogs are forced to run over 1000 miles from Anchorage to Nome within a period of eight to sixteen days. This distance is equivalent to the distance between NYC and Miami. The race began in 1973, and since then, over 140 dogs have died (Molidor). This number does not include the dogs who have died after the race or in the kennels because this information is not released. Sporting events like the Iditarod are abusive to dogs in the name of entertainment and need to be discontinued or seriously reformed.
Have you ever wondered what's so good about the Iditarod or what bad things have happened because of the Iditarod, because if you haven't yet then you're going to go on a journey that could make you think more about history maybe even your future. “The Iditarod is a 1100 mile race from Anchorage to Nome” with 20 different teams of mushers. The reason the Iditarod happened was because of a diphtheria outburst in Nome. The race was then repeated to make people remember everyone who competed in the Iditarod and that the race is no walk in the park.
On the first obstacle which was called the tank trap that was really hard. I had to go through a stream then go to a rock, if the rock was dry and not all muddy like a swamp or like trying to walk up a frozen slope. But I just took an assist which is five points reverse was 1 and a gate was 10. After I got off the rock I went to climb the waterfall that was hard there was no grip or little helper spots so I ended up taking a assist then I went on to the next obstacle.
I made it to the first obstacle on the loop, the “Atlas Lift” which was a second Atlas ball type carry and not such a bad challenge. I started to feel good about this again and continued up the mountain to the next obstacle, the “Sled Drag”, again this is something I typically do with the volunteer sitting in the sled, so I was not that worried and got it done. I made my way up a little bit more of the mountain and then the course headed back down almost to the start of the climb and it was time for the “Log Carry”, I came to this obstacle and knew I was now behind in time to make the cutoff and
I am riding my bicycle through the polder. Lots of things are happening around me. A gull is eating flies right out of the air. A hare spots me and lowers himself trying to look like a bunch of something else. Plovers are chasing away a buzzard. Godwits are shouting against a crow. Frogs are croaking in different tones while drowsing on water plants. Fish are having fun with each other putting up their dorsal fins on and off. Ducks are leaving the bicycle path because they see me coming. I quit the dyke because there are too many flies above the bicycle path. Being no gull, I do not appreciate them as a snack or meal when they fly in my mouth. A sedge warbler resembling a nuthatch is making a lot of noise. Far too much noise for such a little
Inspite of the sense its name presents, a half marathon isn't just a warm-up for the top activity - the marathon. It's a huge test in itself and some thing to never be taken flippantly. Throughout your half marathon training you're going to have to eventually get to running 13.1 miles without having rest and that's a very difficult endeavor.

Freerunning: the art of moving your body across and around a landscape in creative ways by using flips, vaults, rolls and other acrobatic movements. But to me, freerunning is much more; it's a way for me to be myself, to express myself and to let loose. I first discovered the art in my freshman year, when I was looking for something different. I tried the traditional sports, football, basketball, baseball, and even soccer. I didn't see myself there; I wasn’t happy. Although I found comfort in volleyball, it did not satisfy my burning desire for something. Something that was different, that I could make my own.
