These two got a good idea! This link up is awesome because it tells me what to write about and I love it! Up this week?
What is one tangible thing you have that holds intangible value to you?
When graduating from Limon High School and as a Girls Track member, one could be sure to receive a black banner from Coach Grimes that read Limon Girls Track - Teammates Forever, Thanks Grimes.
Lots of you are probably wondering why a black banner is so important to me, why that would mean anything. At the Limon gym all state champion teams have black banners showing the sport, the year. Black = champion. In addition to black banners, there are white banners covering the walls of that gym in eastern Colorado. White banners are runner-up teams, showing the sport and the year. Limon has a long legacy of excelling in sports....all of them, football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, track and softball. Many are proud to call themselves a Badger, proud of the athletic excellence that is important to so many.
Me? I am proud to be a former Lady Badger. I am proud of our accomplishments, our hard work and our dedication. I can only claim to be a part of one banner hanging on the walls of the gym, but Grimes taught me to be a champion even though I wasn't a part of multiple state championships. Each time I look at the black banner that came from Coach Grimes I remember to believe in myself, believe in others and above all else to work my ass off for what I want. Win or lose, work harder than everyone else.
