I have a question - how many of you - if you were not doing a track workout - would go to a track? ok - so I can maybe understand people walking at a track - not really - b/c i think half the fun of going for a walk is looking at neighborhoods and streets etc... but ok - i'll concede and say i can understand walking at a track. However, why do people bring children in wagons to a track? Why do they think that the long jump pit is a place to bring shovels and sandbuckets? I know the track that i go to - does not have anyone using the long jump pit - however go to home depot depot and buy your kid a bag of play sand! Oh and the people with dogs- why why why do you insist on walking your dogs in a lane one? First off - what happens when your dog poops on lane one? Are you going to clean that up - or leave that as a special suprise for my final lap of my timed mile? Now i don't mean to be a track snob - but i don't get it - take your dogs for a walk - give them something to look at - they can't honestly enjoy walking around circles. then there is the guy that likes to bring his two dogs and let them run without leashes all over the track... seriously? Nothing against dogs - but it's a track - not a dog park - i shouldn't have to dodge wrestling dogs while i'm trying to get a workout in. Oh and my newest favorite - have you ever gotten on your bike and said "gee i think i'll go up to the track and get a nice bike ride in?" There was a woman last night wearing a purple cardigan sweater with a green and purple skirt (no not a running skirt - a wear to a nice brunch skirt on) who was riding her bike in circles on the track. I've never seen anything like it. But - i guess it's good the community uses the track - i just wish more people would use it - just to run...
