Usually referred to as a sport for those who cant compete in those such as football or lacrosse, track is actually one of the hardest sports there is in high school athletics. There are no time outs or substitutions in races, and you cant whine to your coach that you feel like your legs are going to fall off every second of the race. Those who say that track is for the weak have obviously never attempted to run an all out mile two mile and even then, would not come even close to the times that true runners have the ability to put up.
Track is different from the more mainstream sports in many ways. Unlike sports such as football or lacrosse, time is not wasted in practice by sitting around and talking on the sides. Instead, during a track practice you are almost always running/working, thus making track practices harder and much more efficient. Also, it is much harder to achieve honors in track such as all-state or all-american.
While track is a team sport, it is also widely seen as an individual sport. Each runner measures there own success by improvement from race to race. There are no benchwarmers in track; everyone races, but it is only those who work hard who will succeed. You get out of track what you put into it. For the most part, you are your own coach. You will determine how much you will improve and how successful you will become in this sport.

A sport that you have to be fast to do. Usually made fun of by fat kids who can't run. These fat kids usually stay home, get fat, and end up serving you at burger king later on in life.

A sport that has the hottest babes on the planet. Those who disagree just have not gone to a large invtational meet. (Penn Relays, The Armory, etc). Its also one of the most diffcult sports to do, as its a high impact sport on your knees, and can destroy your body if you do it incorrectly long enough. But its also one of the few high school sports in which you win metals, which rule.
Dude, that babe over there is STEAMING.
Well yea man, were at a track meet.

An extremely competitive sport that is a combination of running and field events. Obese people who wouldn't be able to last a day in it usually talk crap about people in track, because they are jealous.
JJSupah tried running the 100 meter dash, but fainted at the starting line and wouldn't move until he had McDonalds delivered to him.

A basic sport that requires advanced skill if one is to excel at it. Track encompasses the fundamentals of almost all sports, so a good track athlete is a good all around athlete.
Adam's only on the track team, but he could play football, rugby, soccer, tennis, lacrosse, badminton, basketball, and hockey. He doesn't have the time to play for any other team though.
