Track & Field :)
Track and field is something that I have always loved to do ever sense I was a little kid. I first started when I was in 3rd grade I was 7. Track takes a lot of dedication and heart. When I was little I dreamed about being in the Olympics when I was older. My father used to video tape me when I ran to see what I could do better and to see how I could better myself. When I went into 9th grade I was on the Ramona High-school Varsity team at the age of 14.
Experts say that a runner needs to have a 60-65% intake of carbs. This is because carb’s give athletes both quick and long-lasting energy; our bodies work better with carbs than they do with proteins or fats.Although carbs give energy it’s also important for a runner to have 15-20% daily intake of protein. http://running.about.com/od/nutritionandhydration/a/runnersdiet.htm
This is important because runners need good nutrition so they can train and perform at the best of there ability. I find this important because I like to improve on my skills and get better. Also because one day I hope to be in the Olympics for the USA. J
