ITA IN MEXICO: PART ll
Escuela Secudaria Tecnica (Venado S.L.P)
Being able to connect with the students from Venado's secondary school meant a lot. I lived in Venado for 2 years and I went to first grade there. Many of my childhood memories come from this beautiful town. I was excited to go and share my experience with all of them. To make it to my conference I took the bus from Charcas to Venado. When the bus arrived to Venado I had a good mile walk before I got to the school.
Around 150 students show up to hear me speak. They seemed very interested. Just like in other schools the students wrote down some of their impressions and we took pictures after I was done speaking.
Its obvious that there is way more than just running and racing. I am grateful I can go and share my experiences with others.
