In order to do well in your job you need to have other interests and passions. Mine happens to be distance running and coaching high school kids in particular. I have been an avid runner for years. I ran in college and qualified for the Boston Marathon 5 times and am contemplating running it again when I turn 50. My days of running fast are in the past and my focus is on the great bunch of kids I get to coach at Calvin Christian High School in both cross country and track.
This past season was a fantastic one for both my team and I as a coach as our boys team finished as MHSAA Division III State Champions and our girls team finished 10th. Seeing these young kids work hard to develop the gifts God has given to them was truly enjoyable. Winning was great but seeing them enjoy running and wanting to make being fit a part of their life is even more rewarding.
