“On your mark, get set, go!” screamed the track official. Usually following this quote, I am running track, which relates to my object. My object is a pair of running shoes I use for track practice to run comfortably in addition to running fast. This pair of shoes was bought from a man who comes to HHH West at the beginning of each track season. He owns a store that sells equipment for track such as shoes. When he comes to our school, he brings a few pairs of shoes in his truck and discounts them for our team. He recommended me this pair and I still use them for practice now, although I have a different pair of shoes with spikes for competitive races/meets. My brother was the one who told me about track and he said it is a fun sport that I should try. I decided to give it a shot and did spring track for the first time in my life. From that moment I ended up staying on the team and bought these shoes. As a result, I can connect to them whenever I am at a meet/race. Track practice is everyday after school and also sometimes on weekends, so these shoes are important. They also connect to my identity because I identify myself as a track runner. I am not the best runner on the team, but I am pretty good and maybe if I become good enough in the next two years/my last four track seasons I will be able to run track at college.
