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?
