What is your favorite memory as an ATHLETE?

My favorite memory as an athlete was when I ran my fastest race ever at the conference championships while I was a cross country runner in college. I remember running past my coach halfway through the race and I was way ahead of where I normally was. He always pushed me and believed in me. He was screaming all sorts of motivational things. I felt his energy. I remember looking him in the eyes as I ran past, in my head saying, "I got you, Coach." He shook my hand and hugged me at the end of the race, and that was a high point in my life as an athlete.
What is your favorite memory as a COACH? My favorite memory as a coach was going 10-2 with my JV team in the midst of a pandemic. They were an amazing group of players. We faced a lot of adversity, but they never backed down. They worked hard and battled together every time they stepped on the floor. As their coach, I was so proud of them and so honored to have been able to work with them. They were special, and that was a season I'll remember forever. What is your favorite food?
