Welcome to my On-Line 'Scrapbook' ... or... "K-Mail !" -- Karen :)

The purpose of an on-line scrapbook is to give you an idea of what life is like in competitive
collegiate track & field. On these pages you will find some things that will make you smile
and a few things that may make you sad. However, this is the way life can be with thrills, chills and spills!
I hope you enjoy our life!

Special VOLUME  :    It's not what happens to you that counts... it's how you overcome it!


Here's my side of the story :
Considering everything, I am glad I went to Florida.
It really is a wonderful school with a lot of wonderful
 people and this is how I want to remember the Gators.

However, bad things can happen to anyone.  The key
is to never give up , never get discouraged or do
'the easy wrong rather than the hard right."
