Can you remember a time that you felt proud as a youngster..even now you think about it and feel good...at school i was small...and the PE teacher delighted in seeing me knocked about by the bigger boys in Rugby..i hated him..strong word i know but in a childy hatey way...i loved football and wasnt bad..but he had his favourites..then we had an interschool cross country running day...Mr Summers laughed out loud when he announced i was taking on the under 12s champion from the other school..along with 2 other boys...cant remember the distance but it was 20 laps round a large playing field....he thaught he was clever by making a mug of me as i was always back chatting him...on the day the whole school turned out to watch cos it was run during school time,and lots of other events were taking place...like sports day but against another school....i loved running he didnt know that....after 18 laps that seemed like a jog i started to pull away...was like Gump..even heard a mate shout run Lee run!.....on the last lap i was nearly catching the other runners up to lap them..they were dead on there feet as i was sprinting..the whole school was cheering going bananas and when i crossed the line Mr Summers was noware to be seen....even the other school champion said well done..i did alot of running after that...that day stands out for me..i remember seeing my little sister in the crowd nearly in tears.
As people we tend to pick the bad times out in life to choose to remember...i remember that so clearly...it changed my life really that day,even today its relevent to how i think some days.
So come on people it dosnt need to be life changing but what made you proud...can you think of a time?
