May is a big month for high schoolers in track & field. Most places in the country have had almost a month of good weather (well, except Wisconsin and Nebraska), and with a good month or two of outdoor training, lots of athletes show some serious wheels.
Good luck this month, and remember, the easy days are what allow you to recover from the hard days so you can race well.
