During the track season of 2008, the Herkimer County Community College girls team won track nationals for the NJCAA. I have been an ative member of track and running for all my life. I was on the Patchogue Medford cross country, track and gymnastics team. In Community college i was a member of the Cross country team and track team. At SUNY cortland i was a memeber of the club gymastics team. On the side of all that running I am an active dancer, i took tap for 15 years and still try to dance everyday. Even if I am not on a team at the moment I am still active and try to participate in physical activity everyday.
