Makai Clemons, an 11th-grader, received first place in the Boys 1,500 and 3,000 Meter-Run Varsity events during the 2014 Oahu Interscholastic Association Varsity Eastern Division Track Championship at Kaiser High School in Honolulu, April 5, 2014. "He's very dedicated as far as his diet, his workout (and) his sleep," said Clemons' mother, Malia, the family readiness officer of Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 367. "He trains year-round." When Makai initially chose to participate in cross-country, he started running with his parents and was hooked, and joined track and field. "I'm proud of (my accomplishments)," Makai said. "Since last year especially, I've come a long way. I think the beginning of last year my (3,000-meter run) time was 10.15 and I brought it down to 9 minutes flat. But there's still work to be done, (more goals) I want to achieve." Makai is currently qualified to compete in the Hawaii High School Athletic Association Championship. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Kristen Wong)
