Winter Track Running sign now

The respectful request from a student athlete to the Athletic Director of Neshaminy High school.

I understand that you have banned the indoor track teams from running indoors. This distresses me because I am concerned for my health and safety while practicing everyday after school. I believe that running outdoors all winter puts more athletes on both the boys and girls track teams in jeopardy of pulled muscles, turned ankles, and other pedestrian accidents rather than if we run indoors. It is hazardous to run in sub-freezing weather with wet feet while running in the driveway and dodging pot holes, cars, buses, and breathing all the fumes coming from them. When we run with five layers of clothing to keep warm, it hinders our ability to function properly. We cannot run on the high school stadium track for days after it snows or if there is ice. We have state championship competitors on both teams, and need to maintain our high standard of competition. How are we to compete at that level this season? I believe banning indoor running is too drastic and detrimental a solution to the problems that have previously arisen from indoor running. I believe that we can find some compromise that will be beneficial to both the school and the teams. For example, I understand that the primary reason we were banned from indoors was that there were some collisions at corners. I suggest that we put 3 cones at each corner to designate lanes. We already yell corner to warn people that we are coming, but this would be a visible reminder to keep to the right and stay safe. As for the comment that damage was done to posters during this time, I cannot believe this is true but how are they in any more danger from 3:00-5:00 then they are all day? We run, not loiter. We are a good group of kids. We are not out to cause harm. We really appreciate having access to the hallway from the business center to Gym two. However, it is not nearly big enough for the guys and girls teams to practice in together.
We believe there is some middle ground on this issue. Please reconsider this and maybe we can find a compromise. Thank you!
