        we are planning on it. looking to do the 3000m, possibley the 400. however, i have had a sustained injury— taking time off right now. will have to see.

        contemplating quitting my job to work for Home Depot—- wonder if they support working schedules for master athletes? (smile)

        How would you go about entering the meet? Are there qualifying meets for it? I'd be interested in competing!

        Anyone one 30 and over can compete. They run prelims and finals as numbers dictate.
        Go to

        or go to for more info on masters track

        or there is a masters page

        Let me know if you need any more help.


        I too am rehabbing: an upper hamstring. Where are you from, how old? I love track but it sure is tough on the body when you push it to the limit. I'm hoping it all works out.
        My time in 100m has been go enough to get me in the finals although I've never gone before. I just base it off of seeing the results online.
        It bites being held back recently by injury, I normally compete in a few college meets at this time. Watching the Home Depot meet on NBC this Saturday just gets me more fired up to train….
