What do you like most about High school?

What are your favorite things about being involved with sports?
R- I like being competitive- it’s kinda funny, lol. I also like meeting new people.

C- How far away are these places?
K&R- Vancouver, Richmond, some even live in Kelowna and on the island.
What has been your proudest athletic achievement?
R – This summer we went to the junior division championships in Kelowna. We were running in a 4x100m relay and we won! But, the funny thing is that we only had one sprinter on our team.
K- We beat our PB by 2 seconds and won by like 50m! and we got fancy medals, lol.
What motivates you when getting ready for a race?
R- Ummm, I like to talk to people. Then I’ll do a couple sprints but, I never listen to music. Or I’ll talk to my coach and they’ll pump me up-hopefully.
K- I have a playlist I listen to.
C- Do you guys have any specific snacks?
R- ohh, I like licorice and then after a race I like to eat popsicles.
K- Sometimes I eat French fries before a race, but normally it turns out to be a very bad idea.
C- You see, I would opt to eat normal food like an apple and a cliff bar.
K- I like eating carrots too!
A year from now what will you remember most about BC championships?
K- Probably…. How cold it was. Also, my shirt- it’s really nice.

C- What about that MC?
K- omg! He was British! British people are the best.
R- We also got subway water bottles.
K- Oh ya, we had to do squats with the subway monkey to get those water bottles.
C- How did you guys like the actual race?
K- Ya that was a terrible experience. I kept tripping over roots!
R- It was actually kinda fun. I was just like “ohh ya, letttss goooo.”
If the ferry had capsized on the way home, what 3 things would you like to have on a deserted island?
R- Ummmm… well, food. Specifically, mashed potatoes and gravy and ice cream. Better yet, a whole turkey dinner! Oh, and probably Katie and my phone.
C- What if there is no cell service or it dies?
R- Well, I’ll make a charger.
K- Wait are we together on this island?
K- Oh okay. I’ll bring a boat, blankets, and water.
R- Well now I don’t have to bring Katie… so I’ll bring movies/computer, food and a speaker so we can jam out.
C- Sounds like an island party!
Would you rather be stuck in the woods or meet a cyborg?
R- I’d rather be stuck in the woods, so I could be friends with monkeys.
C- what kind of woods are you in? lol.
R- I meant wolves, lol. Wolves seem kinda nice!
K- I don’t want to meet a cyborg that’s kind of terrifying. I read the book Sinder which was about cyborgs and they don’t sound nice.
