Chase Gornbein

Chase Gornbein ’16 is always looking to push and challenge himself. He likes to test his mental and physical strength whenever possible.

Usually, Gornbein finds his fill of thrill in taking his running to the next level on the track (like with his unreal under-five-minute best mile time). Not only does he enjoy the difficulty of running, but the relaxation it brings along as well.

“I enjoy running because I have the ability to release all of my emotions and let it out on the track,” Gornbein said.

Another way that Gornbein has recently decided to do this is by writing for Inklings. He compares letting his emotions out by running to letting off steam by writing, the only difference being that the track has become the pad of paper.

“I always loved reading the school paper and thought it’d be a really unique experience to try writing for it,” he said.

Although this is his first year as an official Staff Writer, his career actually debuted last year with a story about a Staples student auditioning for “The Voice.”

        Although he started simple, Gornbein’s big dream is to be a journalist for the New York Times.

He hopes that the skills he has developed through challenging himself in running will carry into his writing.

For example, Gornbein says that the discipline he has acquired from running has helped him to “stick to a structure and be organized” in writing. He hopes that his mastered discipline will work to his advantage in someday obtaining a job writing for the New York Times.
