    In 8th grade I ran varsity track for the first time. I fell in love with pentathlon. I went on to win sectionals and came in second in my division at the qualifying meet for states. Second wasn't quite good enough to get me to states though. If I only could have pushed a...

    I did. I used to be my schools best long jumper, held the school record for a few years before someone beated it. I also did the relay, which my team won every year except one, when one of our teammates was in crutches. She bounced back the following year. I also did discus...

    Training - World Masters Track 2011

    So I have started my training for the 2011 World Masters Track and Field meet in Sacramento. It is going to be tough. My body use to respond very quickly to training with little recovery needed before I could push myself again. It is hard for my mind to tell me to stop and give...

    Mostly running events.

    100m, relay, 400m, 800m and 1600m. I dont do 200m because anyone who is a good runner knows that is the weirdest distance to run half the track. But it is the easiest. I went to my provinces secondary school ahtletic assosiation meet because I won out of my county in all running...

    Next Track Season

    I throw javelin and do pole vault for my high school team. I got tendonitis in both of my knees that won't go away until I'm done growing. Now I can barely run, and I'm really disappointed that track probably won't turn out so great this year.

    My First Kiss

    Do you remember your first kiss? So many years and kisses later, I can't remember many of my kisses and how they felt or how I felt. Ahhh, but that first one I can remember so many details. It was the summer of 1982 and I was 10 years old - my family always spent the summer at a...

    I Do It

    i did the mile and the two mile last year (i did the two mile so much during the 3 years that i have been doing track that my team nicknamed the event after me, calling it the "jimmy"). I kind of suck at them. i would really like to do the 800 because it is short and is...

    I do long jump, 60s and 100s.

    I usually run 2 miles at practice (Monday-Thursdays) and practice long jump and sprinting. I'm really sore ._.

    On And Off The Track

    I throw discus on the track team at my college. Since the 7th grade I've been on and off the track team, from various situations. I got sick during my first season, the flu, and didn't get better for a while because I kept trying to go out an practice. I started again my 9th...
