Back to track this evening. The young kids' soccer teams are out in force! This little munchkin was hanging out while big brother/sister was playing. I like the distraction of all the activity on the field. It makes the track seem smaller somehow and more friendly with community activities.
I figure if I can hit the paces i'm aiming for while dodging the stray balls, stray kids and the more annoyingly clueless parents, I'm doing good! I only yelled "track" twice at parents standing clueless in lane 1 (ie closest to the curb on the dirt as there are no lane markers on this track) and had to swerve around one mom with her dog. At least I didn't kick the dog! it was close. 26
