It was the first HS track practice i’ve seen since 1977

WPS HS track practice
Looks boring. Above coach Williams’s head are two runners doing intervals.


Surprised to see the Track team having 7am practice on a no-school Friday. The track marked the four-mile mark of yesterday’s run. i said hello to coach Williams and then watched the athletes for a few minutes – in and out of walking and jogging a couple laps. It was tempting to want to run intervals with them.

The night before i arrived early to school (to pick up our son) and with time to kill, walked down to the track. It was the first HS track practice i’ve seen since 1977. Spent 20 minutes wondering what my high school track practices would have looked like to an observer.

PS. i resisted the temptation to ask if i could join in.
