Here's the deal:

My whole school career, I really havn't played sports. I played baseball around 3rd grade here and there, but nothing big. Howerever, I train in MMA, Brazilian Ju Jitsu, and kickboxing outside of school.

It's my junior year in high school. A year ago I met this guy named Jesse, and he convinced me to join track. However, I fear the worst:
I don't think I'll be able to do some of the conditioning, causing me to embarrass myself.
I want to get in shape, but it's winter in Ohio, so I can't really run and I don't own a treadmill
Signups are around April, and on one half I want to join track, and on the other I don't want to embarrass myself and disappoint my friends.
So any tips on how to get in shape for distance running, or how to get motivated to run in this stupid icy weather?

stop being a bitch, the only way you'll be embarrassing or a disappointing is if you give up on yourself before you try

if you're into MMA i'd say fuck the distance running and go out for wrestling.

I tried wrestling last year, but the mandatory daily conditioning was too much. I was starting to get depressed because I was so out of shape. I'm in better shape now, and I've decided I want to work on my legs/running
