Kayla is a track runner who cannot always feel her legs while she is running. Kayla had to learn how to be able to run while her legs feel like nothing, she had to learn to pace her self. When she starts out running she can feel her legs but as her body heats up she begins to feel less in her legs until she feels nothing. Kayla started off as one of the slowest runners on the team then became faster then the boys track team. Nothing was stopping this girl she was determined. Kayla resolved and became a great track runner. When she runs track she still does it for the fun. When Kayla runs and has to stop because she can't feel her legs her coach has to catch her and stop her. Once Kayla is done with a race her coach takes her to a spot in the grass and there is cold things like ice to cool her legs down so her body temperature goes back to normal and so she is able to walk again. Kayla is a clear example of perseverance and is someone who doesn't give up. Kayla has a conviction that she can run even if she cant feel her legs.
