  1. Hello!!
    My interest in track and field has only grown as I’ve gotten old. I am 28 and would love to learn more about the track and field lifestyle.
    When I was in middle school we did some sprinting and I loved it. I recently started road running and a friend of mine asked that I join her in some track work for speed. It was amazing! I had the best time that night. It sparked something in me again.
    I am wondering how I could join living about 45 minutes from Boston, working full time and taking classes to further my career.
    You ask that all members meet on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday’s. Neither of those days work for me :/. Could you recommend a track and field near me (I live I Northborough, MA), if anything but?!
