My head running with excitement
Will I get to the top ten, or the top 5?
I remember everything may dad told me.
Will I get better results than last year?
Bang! We’re off!
Nervously I sprinted the first fifty metres and then my stomach started burning like fire as I ran along the camp ground track.
My legs were jellyish and nerves are greater than when I was at school.
Round the last bend, trying to sprint, but my legs won’t go faster.
14th! Happy, but puffed, and faster than last year.
