There is nothing like being outside, going for a nice run with the snow trickling down. As the snow dusts the trees and the ground, you feel as if you are in the setting of a Christmas card. With the Kenston Indoor Track team, we have the privilege to go to beautiful parks such as South Chagrin Reservation, West Woods, Frohring Meadows, Beartown Lakes, and Polo Fields; where the beauty of nature is enhanced. We also run at the school’s trails as well.
Aside from being in the beautiful outdoors, Indoor Track is a great way to make new friends. Athletes bond through post Saturday practice runs to Einstein’s bagels, snowball fights, Wendy’s meals after meets at SPIRE Institute, and more! Athlete Evan Measures said, “You’ll be surprised how fun Indoor Track is! It stinks running out in the cold sometimes, but it is so fun that it does not even matter!”
Indoor Track is for everyone who is looking to have fun, and wants to get stronger and faster. Coach Ickes has individualized training plans for everyone, and gives no favoritism to athletes. The two main groups are sprinters and distance runners. If you are consistent with your training, Ickes will make you stronger and faster.
The top priority is that all athletes are safe, and are driven to meets and practices via responsible upperclassmen. The sport is truly fun, and I recommend to all to consider doing it!
