Sometimes trackies would rather spend their saturday at a track or cross country meet than at a raging party. But they still have the same amount of fun because they're all so close and cool. Trackies are also often considered as ... well a cult.
Sam- I don't know man, he's such a trackie, he might be at a meet.
Nick- But trackies are the most fun people around!
Jill- That was such a great run. Let's go get some pizza now.
Greg- Great idea, then I think I feel a nap coming on! It's what us trackies do!
They form "track" tables at lunch where the conversations revolve around "PRs" or colorful spandex, and the big news is the possible fart lek workout for practice that day. When you see them outside of practice and school, you immediately feel guilty that you haven't run all weekend.
Track/Cross country are fun, "worth it" sports, but the trackies suck you in and become your only social circle and soon enough a majority of your conversations and thoughts revolve around your race times and workouts. As hard as it is, resist the "pull" of the trackies and just be a well rounded runner and person.
