Track and field

Have you ever wondered why people run for fun?  What the significance of track is? Track is what you make of it.

Track and field is a combination of field events such as throwing, jumping, and running: which goes from 50m hurdles – 3600m. Unlike other sports, track is simply a sport that helps you get in shape, and helps you improve skills. Whether it’s from throwing a short distance, to jumping farther than you ever jumped! It’s a matter of commitment and hard work. If you’re not going to put your all into what you do, then it reflects in your races and events.

It can be quite overwhelming sometimes when you over think about the little things, but you have to keep moving. My past coaches have told me key things that I have kept with me until this day.

“Don’t let the little things knock you down. Sometimes you fall, and when you do you get back up”-Anonymous.

Sometimes when you feel like giving up, it’s better to just think about what you think is the problem, and try to fix it. Giving up won’t make you better, it will only slow you down even more.

Everyone has their own skills, and it takes specific training and strength to bring the talent out of their shell. Each event is not the same, which means more people can try to search what they like best about each one. Being open-minded in a sport like track is good because depending on what sport you play, there is always a better option that you can partake in.

Another key thing with track is setting goals. Some may call it “PR” which stands for personal record. Whether it’s improving a second or a minute, you want to set that up for yourself so not only can you better yourself, but you’re pushing yourself closer to success.

I suggest more people join track no matter what school they go to, because it helps with getting stuff off your mind, improving skills, and getting you fit for your next season, if you play multiple sports. Track and field is for anyone, any age, and is here not only to make you better, but also to help you build a better perspective on skills and exercises.
