VYPE Q&A: St. Agnes cross country runner Sara Price
Originally Appeared on Vype
WHO: Sara Price, St. Agnes, Sophomore
WHAT: Won the VYPE Private School Girls Cross Country Top Athlete Poll
VYPE: How long have you been running cross country and how did you get start?
SP: My brother introduced me to the sport when I was in fourth grade. As a fourth grader, cross country was the only sport I could compete in for my school, and I knew and loved the Coaches: Coach Marion Jones and Coach Anthony Arthur Lee. They taught me what it means to truly work hard and never give up. I am so grateful for them, and they are one of the main reasons I continued cross country.
VYPE: What is your favorite and least favorite part about running?
SP: My favorite thing about running is the community. My team is the most supportive, loving group of people I have ever met, and I cannot imagine running without them. My Saint Agnes Coach, Coach Robbins, inspires me to work hard every day and has always believed in me no matter what. My least favorite part is the mile repeats because it is truly one of the hardest things I have ever done.
VYPE: What is your pregame routine? (Meals, songs, superstitions, etc.)
SP: My pregame routine includes a LOT of pasta (marinara is the best) and a motivating pep talk in which I outline my goals for the race and remind myself that I am a competitor. I discard any negative thoughts and listen to some really good music.
