Q: How is your track season going so far?

 A: My season has been fun so far, but recently it’s been rough because of my shin splints. 


Q: Since it’s your first time doing track in high school, how is it different from track at the junior high school? 

A: Track in high school is different because the workouts are much harder. Junior high track was definitely easier.  


Q: What do you like about track? 

A: I love getting to spend time with friends, while getting in a good workout, building speed, and getting stronger. Also, it’s fun when the sun is shining! Track is a blast, especially competing in races. 


Q: What events do you do? 

A:  I do sprints, relays, and hurdles. I don’t like to run long distances super fast, so sprints are more fun for me. Hurdles are also really fun. 


Q: How would you describe track to someone interested in joining?

A: Track is a great activity to be involved in, because you get to have fun with friends, compete in races, and have the opportunity to do many different events such as sprinting, long distance, relays, throwing, pole vault, high jump, long jump, and hurdles.
