Humans of Southport: Adrianna Frederick

Tabatha Fitzgerald, Reporter

“I wasn’t a really good runner. I did it anyways, and I got the hang of it. I guess what inspired me was that I had three generations of runners before me who were captains and had great success, and I’ve always wanted to be like them. What kept me motivated during my triathlon training was (that) I just wanted success. I wanted to be a good runner, to be a good captain and leader. Over the summer I worked really hard everyday swimming, running and biking. The outcome I got was (that) I was a captain and a varsity cross country runner. It was a good learning experience, and it was very heartwarming to know that people look up to me as a leader during cross country, and that I lived up to my generations of runners’ expectations.”
