It was a beautiful fall day on the campus of Wellesley College. Together with 60 other coaches, we spent the weekend reviewing the intricacies of being a track coach. It made me think about how much I enjoyed track and how much it affected my desire to become a coach myself. In the last ten years we have seen an explosion of road race participants. People are finding ways to run, even though the claim to not be a “runner”. It’s awesome to see people expanding their fitness goals and training for an event. I hope to see track become as accessible to the recreational runner. Track meets are a blast. Your whole team gets to cheer you on during each event and its spectator friendly. With a road race you see your friend as they run by and at the finish. During a track meet your whole group is right there to see the entire race. I think it’s time to do some recruiting!!
