Help: advice needed for a new runner/sprinter :) (sorry for duplication)

Hello all,
Sorry for the duplication of these emails.  Have been having trouble
with my netscape browser settings.....

Anyway, I am a 32 year old male who is slightly overweight (about 180

5'8").  I've been in school and temp jobs for a long time and am just
now settling into some stablility.  I used to be a track and field
athelete up through high school but left it there.  Now I want to get
back into running again.  Can anyone help me with some advise on how to
start up again?  I'm mainly interested in sprint training again.  I'm
looking into joining our local track club (they hold mini-track meets
every month).  However, most of the club seems to be into distance
running and training for marthons.  Unfortunately, I get real bored with

long distance running.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Please email me at

often as I would like.  Hope to hear from you all real soon.

Regards
Brad

Where do you live? Most large cities have regular master track meets. I suggest
you look up masters track on the Internet and try to talk to some of the people
there. You are not old enough to qualify as a master but someone active in
masters track in your area would know of track clubs and events you could join.

I would guess that the track club you have joined uses track in a different
sense than you and I do. Track as in track and field includes sprints, etc.
Track as in what I am guessing your club is means any running on the track.I
have run with a track club locally and they are entirely distance runners.
