When you work hard in practice, you start to achieve things you did not believe was possible. This is why, as a coach, you push to get the best out of your athlete.
Sometimes it takes a while before it starts to 'click' with an athlete. You have to always push and teach technique with proper form.
You can see this come out at meets sometimes when an athlete performs well above their own expectations. This is shown by our 400 runs this weekend. There was no 400 meter dash but instead an 800. Each one performed at a level that surprised themselves.

On the track, he is a 1987 graduate of North forsyth High School. Harvey joined The Winston Salem Roadrunners as an athlete at age 13, where he found guidance from the many coaches that volunteered their time to help the youth in poor neighborhoods.
After High School, Harvey studied at Winston Salem State University for a year before transferring to Appalachian State University to continue his studies and run track.
At Appalachian, he was a pure sprinter with the 55M and 100M dash as his best events. Harvey was a part of the team that won several conference meets from 89-91.
