I admire my track coach, Coach Ed, so much. The most exciting reason is that he is extremely comical and has amazing jokes to tell the track team. Next, he is an excellent leader who helps me in track. Lastly, he makes me feel proud of myself even if I lose a race. Coach Ed is the best coach I have known.|
Coach Ed can be hysterical and can tell good jokes. One time when it was a hot day, he poured water on me and my freind Katie, who is also on the team. Another time, he told the track team how in a race there were two children that kept running into each other. Coach Ed is always laughing and thinnking about the positive side of things. Moreover, when someone is sad, he comes up with a good joke to cheer them up. All in all, Coach Ed is the most hilarious person I know.
Coach Ed helps me a lot. Every year I get faster and faster and more competitive because he helps me practice running. Without him, I would still be as slow as I was two years ago. Coach Ed gives the track team advice before a track meet, like to always look forward and keep your pace. He always yells, "Go, Tay, go!" louder than anyone there. Coach Ed has helped me through a lot the past two years.
Coach Ed also makes me feel proud of myself. After a 100 meter dash, if I do not win, he will always be there to cheer me up. Also, if I am the last one to cross the finish line, he'll say it was a hard race and I did the best I could. Coach Ed is always there for me. Moreover, he makes sure that I always have a good time. If I don't, he will try his best to make me happier and it works. Coach Ed is a great hearted coach.
Coach Ed is the best coach. He is funny, he helps me run fast, and makes me proud of myself. In summary, I will always LOVE my track Coach, Coach Ed.
