This past weekend I went to the Philly Marathon where I was able to witness a world record being broken by a person named Abebe Mekuriya. Hearing the DJ announce that the record has been broken brought me back to a time when I was in elementary school. In gym class, I noticed that I had a lot more upper body strength then any power in my legs. I was never the fastest person in my school, but somehow was one of the strongest. At one point, we have to take a physical test in the class that would be graded. I remember coming home one day crying because I failed the running test. However, the next class was the pull-up test. As I started doing them, I found out that this was not hard at all compared to the running test. I completed it with 18 pull-ups as well as breaking the schools record as a fifth grader. That day was one of the best days of my fifth grade school year.
