Racing for time...

A new lifetime movie based on a true story that will air on February 16th. It's about a correctional facility guard who changed the lives of teen offenders by starting a track team.

It stars Charles Dutton, and the America's Next Top Model Runner-up Yaya.

The story runs close to my heart because I was a track and field girl. It true indeed was the thing that kept me out of a juvenile facility like this. Without having track practice after school, the discipline it took, and the time and dedication it made me have, I would have probably been running the streets, and who knows, could have been involved in some gang, or maybe even gotten pregnant.

Here is the trailor:

And just for kicks a sexy little diddy about track and field girls:
