Hi! I like running, hockey, soccer, and am trying to stay fit while in college. You can read more on my about me page if you want to.

No one in the building is more riled up than the man with more wins than any active NHL coach, Joel Quenneville — “When that game starts, he definitely turns the switch on; he’s intense.”

Why?

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument in dedication to the services of an unknown soldier, Marine, airman or sailor and to the common memories of all soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors killed in any war. Throughout history, many soldiers have died in wars with their remains being unidentified. The tomb is guarded 24/7 365. Even through hurricanes as a sign of respect.

These soldiers stand guard, day and night, through blistering heat and freezing cold. They stand in driving rain without flinching. It is one of the highest honors to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and there are no excuses, no rainy days. One year, a really bad hurricane swept through the coast and the soldiers were given permission to leave their post. They declined, choosing to stay and guard the tomb.
These men inspire me and have my utmost respect. Thank you.

“It’s a huge honor to be part of that (photo),” Chara said, according to The Boston Globe. “Very humbling that we were able to participate in such a proud moment of capturing what did happen, and more likely how the city and people and athletes, everybody, responded.”

I Love Runners

Why do I love runners?

Because the fastest of you stay after you finish to cheer on the rest of us.

Because you encourage the person who just started.

Because you treat this solitary event as a team sport where I am the star athlete.

Runners support each other like no other.

Runners are immediately friends.

You always have something to talk about.

Oh my gosh guys. I love cross country. My best friend from another state was struggling a lot during her race, she couldn’t breathe and was not running well. She didn’t think she would finish. then this awesome girl from another team started encouraging her, ran along side her, and grabbed her hand and held it all the way to the finish. Honestly true sportsmanship, I love this sport.
