On Your Marks….Get Set…. GO!
The Iowa State Track and Field teams started their indoor season last week with the Holiday Preview and I got to go! Indoor track meets are free to students and are held at the Lied Recreation Center. I enjoy track meets because I have a lot of friends who are on the track team. They are also fun to attend because they last for a long time so if I can’t make it right away there is still a chance that I can catch a later race.
Some of my friends from high school actually run at schools in surrounding areas or at other Big 12 schools so I can come and see them compete some of the time. It’s nice reconnecting with friends right on campus considering I am an out-of-state student.
Track meets are fun, free, and often a new experience for students. Just be careful not to walk on the track during a race! 🙂
