    Why does the track team run carrying a pair of shoes?

    This has been a mystery to me and I don't know who to ask. I work on a university campus and I regularly see the track team--the men and the women distance runners (I assume since they don't look like the sprinters or shot-putters)--running and they're always carrying a pair of shoes, one shoe in each hand. I thought maybe they were carrying minimalist shoes and at some point using them in their workout, but a closer look at the shoes it appears that they are running in regular fully-padded shoes and carrying regular fully-padded shoes. Why do they do it?

    My guess is that if it's a combined indoor/outdoor workout, the pair they are carrying is for indoors.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
