The spring track season outdoors, in most high schools begins with a few dual meets. Dual meets are a great way to get some early season racing in, try new distances and see what you need to do in the next couple of months. In California, we began racing outdoors in late February. In Missouri, we began racing in late March. In Wisconsin, where I live now, they have had snow at early-season outdoor meets!
Enjoy the racing! Enjoy the daily running! See what you can do this season! And, good luck!
