Tremendous Track

Here I am running in a race against the teams Lane Five and Flying Pheonxis.

Have you ever stepped on a track and started running as fast as you can? Yes, I play for a track team called the Speedy Squirrels. I have been playing this fun sport for one year!

I have my very own running shoes that I use for practice and meets. A meet is a race that you do against other teams. This Saturday we are competing against a team called the Chiefs. I want to be a professional track player one day, so I practice three days a week.

When you run track, you can do different events like I am a distance runner so I run the 1500 meters which is four laps around the track. Another event that I do is the 800 meters which is two laps around the track. If you are a sprinter then the 100, 200, 400, and the relay race is for you.

The uniform for track is you wear something called a singlet. A singlet is a no sleeve shirt with black shorts. You can wear a headband or a bandana to keep your hair from blowing in your face.

On Saturday I did something called a qualification. When you qualify you must meet the time you are supposed to get. For example, my time for the 1500 was 6:12 and my time for the 800 was 3:06. I met both, so I will go to varsity. Varsity is the meet before the championship.

If you get in the top eight in varsity, then you will go to CCC. CCC is the championship for track.

Here is a picture of my track shoes that I use for track practice and for meets.

Have you ever run track, if so what events did you do?

Do you play any other sports than track, if you do what are they?

  1. Hi Ana,

    What a wonderful post about track!

    We have something in common as I also like running. I run about 5km (3.1 miles) a few times a week. I used to enjoy running longer distances but now I find a 5km convenient to fit into my busy lifestyle.

    I don’t take part in races but from time to time I do “fun run” events. These are like races but they’re just for fun! Sometimes they’re to raise money for charity.

    You are a very fast runner! Do you have family members who are runners too?

    Keep up your great blogging, Ana.

    Best wishes from Australia,
    Mrs Morris

  2. Hi Ana! (From Ottawa,Ontario Canada)

    So wonderful to come across your blog from a simple link your teacher shared out. Isn’t it amazing how you can connect with other runners or people who are interested in what you have to say (even when they are 1000s of km away!) wishing you the best of success in your blog! On a side note…I’m a “runner” too..but I have a feeling that you would beat me in a race 🙂 if you ever want to connect to any of our students here at my school ( were starting blogfolios next year) let me know 🙂 you would be a excellent go to peer mentor 🙂

    Best to you (and in all your meets!)
    Mrs. Cleveland
