I remember one day in high school, I finished my run in cross country practice by finishing with a sprint, thinking I would show everyone how hard I practiced that day. Instead, my cross country coach yells, "Dresbach! We don't race to train. Train to race." He explained to me that certain days I needed to run at a slower pace in order to train harder the next day, which would help me run my best on race days. Note taken: planning your pace makes you stronger in the long run.
Many students come to Kinwell behind on credits to graduate high school. Our program allows them to work as many hours it takes to get on track, graduate, and kick down the door into life (usually job or college). So we work with each student to help them know the pace for them to start killin' it! Some students are already more than halfway or close to being done with their first credit of the year!
