I Miss The TrackI was once a champion track athlete. I was a sprinter, and I trained 3-5 days a week when I was younger. I loved the burst of speed, hitting your peak, and pushing yourself right to the very end, making each muscle fire fast and with power. I was better at the longer sprints. 400m was my specialty for which I was City and Provincial champion. I enjoyed the shorter distances too, but just wasn't as good at them.
Eventually I had to chose between running and dancing. I couldn't do both. Sadly, I left the track behind.
I took up soccer to allow me to keep running. Of course, 18 years has passed since I ran on a track, so I'm not as fast as I once was. But I've still got it. I can keep up with some of those young 20-somethings on the soccer field.
I do miss the track though. Running, just for the sake of running. I would love to get back at it someday...even running longer distances. Running invigorates me...
