The air is finally getting a bit warmer, days a bit longer, the sun a bit less forgiving and a fresh coat of yellow pollen covers the ZAP cars. Spring is here, which can only mean one thing: track season is back. So it’s time to lace up those spikes, hammer a few quarters and ramble on in a blog or two about how excited I am.
To be fair, my track season kicked off some weeks ago at the rainy, Raleigh Relays 5k. One way or another, I’m still eager to run a few more races on the track this season. The biggest of which has to be Stanford’s Cardinal Invitational on May 1. I have been gearing up for the 10,000-meter race for almost 7 months now and think that my ducks are almost in a row. Where that row of ducks is going… that’s a different story, but it will be interesting to see. I won't be alone in my travel to sunny California next week. ZAP should be well represented by Frank, Thomas, Ali and Alissa in the 5k or 10k races. It will surely be an exciting weekend, hopefully filled with personal bests. I am also glad that my famil will be able to catch the races live, at Flotrack.com.
