So, every now and then, I'll put down some random things I think of on here
and... yeah... Most of the stuff that I write down isn't relatively close to what
happens in my real life though.
Hard breathing, soft footing, rough ground. I risked a glance back as I turned a
corner. No! They were catching up! I gasped for air. The muscles in my legs ached and
it felt like my throat was tightening up. I wouldn't ever be able to out run them! I
could feel myself slowing down. I felt like I was going to collaspe. Maybe a short
Shouts. NO! I can't slow down, I kept saying to myself. I took in a lot of air and
held my breath. My legs moved in cycle-like motions and my arms pumped in a blur. I
turned another corner and I let my breath out slowly. There! About one hundred meters
away! My escape from this running, this madness. I felt myself slowing in relief. I
No! Don't slow down! They're still back there! I shouted at myself. I turned my head
back around and pushed myself further. Fifty meters.... Twenty-five... Come on! I
urdged myself as I heard them coming up closer behind. Then...
I was through. I finished. Cheers were heard around me. I smiled in triumph as I took
the yellow ribbon that was now attached to my stomach and held it up to the sky. I
can't believe it. I won.
I won the four hundred meter race.
