My Best Friend

Freedom, passion, trust, faith, love, hope, courage, strength, but most of all fight. All of these characteristics are built inside the heart of a true runner. Some people just run because of weight issues or because they are forced to. There are few people who honestly really love to run. If you say running, cross country, track or anything along those lines, one person pops in my head first, Natalie Vaughn. Such a strong hearted girl that puts everything she’s got right in front of her, has no regrets and tries her absolute best every time. She is the hardest worker I know. She never cuts things short because she absolutely knows it will pay off later. The strength she has to never give up, keep trying and never back down has influenced me a lot. Natalie is also a great motivator. She doesn’t only focus on herself, she motivates others as well. Whether its practice or a race she’s always there for me when I need a boost of confidence. She has the courage and strength anyone would die to have and that just proves she can do anything she sets her mind to.

I am proud to call Natalie my best friend. She is always there for me when I need her and I know I can always trust that she’ll be there for me. She pushes through all of her pain and looks for the light at the end of the tunnel.

I know she will do great with her career.

Others may just look at Natalie as a girl who runs. I see her as the most inspirational best friend I’ve had. I’ll always keep in mind how mentally tough she is and how she continues to grow smarter, tougher, and a better runner. Now that you, Natalie, are reading this,...
