My article will be me vlogging all of the workouts and exercises I am doing. From ab workouts to simply going on a night walk with mom, I will be doing something to stay in shape.
As we know, the Coronavirus has taken over and taken away so many important things from me, namely the fun class trip, prom, and most likely graduation, but it also took away sports.
Growing up in sports has been such a huge influence on who I am today. The fact I played my last high school basketball game without knowing, with my team in the locker room for the last time without knowing, had my last pasta dinner without knowing, it is all so much to process. I still think that after this is all over I will be getting on a bus to play that quarter final state tournament game.
I chose to do a vlog so I can see my face and see if I am enjoying it. I really hope that after this experience is done, I can go back and say I made the best of quarantine. I want to stay active, in shape, motivated, like I was in basketball. That was when I was happiest, on the court with a ball in my hand.
I hope that as the days drag on, I can find the determination I had on the court, get these hard workouts done, and feel accomplished after doing it. I want to go on walks and feel the simplest bliss I did back when I was just waiting for the bus with my team. I miss it all so much and it will never come back.
I hope that as my journey continues I accomplish my goal because I never made it to Mohegan, I want to find my run to the sun.
