Then my neighbor tells me about a track that he runs on all the time just up the, in the other direction, at the big Baptist church. So last night I tried it out and it was fantastic! It was an old school cement track with some cracks and was also a little creepy at night, but I still got the joy joy joy joy down in my legs. I jogged the mile out to the track, did 6 100 meter sprints, walked one more lap and then jogged back for a total of 3 miles. Since it was kind of dark and creepy, I think next time I'll take a little light of mine and let it shine.

Mega Church Track
I have two tracks 1 mile away from my house. One is a mile north and the other, a mile south. The one to the north is a public high school (let me stress PUBLIC!) and the one to the South is a Baptist Mega Church/ Christian Academy. Upon first moving to the area I would frequently use the high school track for my work outs. Being in the dark ages with no Garmin it was nice to get a feel for my pace by doing a portion of my workout on the track. It was nice, that is, until last year when Vance high school put their track on lock down. From what I could tell there was never any vandalism. One day they just started locking the gate. I went one day and saw another person running laps and the gate unlocked! I made one lap when that person asked me how I got in there. I don't know? How about the open gate right over there, dumb ass. I didn't say it in those exact words. Apparently that person was a coach and they told me that I couldn't be out there. Jerks.
