“C’mon, Michael, it’s game time. Slip on your Hanes, lace up your Nikes, take your Wheaties and your Gatorade, and we’ll grab a Big Mac on the way to the ballpark!”
Even though the above quote has absolutely nothing to do with cross country or track, it still finds its way into my head at some point before almost every meet I’ve ever been in. And it’s been in my mind again recently. Why? Well, this Friday is Fontbonne’s outdoor track season opener at Wash U! Everyone on the team is looking forward to it, I’m sure, but there’s no reason why we should have all the fun. Track and cross country rarely have any meets closer than Illinois, much less as close as Wash U. So if you’ve been waiting for a chance to watch a college track meet, here it is! I know that I especially appreciate people cheering for me (Just say that I look good. Even if it isn’t true – and oh, it won’t be – just keep on saying I look good. Thanks.) and the rest of the runners do too! So don’t be afraid – it’s just a short walk away! Come support the Fontbonne track team!
