"…I would say the competition is definitely more competitive. I mean, like you are competing at a D one, like collegiate level, so everyone is really good.

"…The hardest part I would say is just like the time commitment. I have practice every day and then I have weights like three times a week, so it adds up over time. And I would say the best part is I really just like the team aspect of it. Really fun just having people to run with and compete with.…"
