Anyway, first meet of the summer is next Thursday at 6PM. I'll be running the mile at this one. Can't wait as I've never run one before.
I guess I'll just wear my racing flats as I don't own (and have never run in) spikes. Will they laugh me off the track? Seriously ... I don't know about this kind of stuff.
Flats are fine. I watched one of these Los Gatos meets back in the Winter and you had some people run in spikes and others in flats. It is a perfect forum to experiment with spikes if you've never tried them, though.
I ran an all comers 800m race a few years ago in spikes and had a blast trying to keep up with a bunch of pre-season college kids. I really loved racing on the track. Now, I'm kind of afraid of it since I've been mainly putzing around with trail races and the like.
