It was a summer’s day. The sun shone high in the sky. Today was race day; I was excited to take part in a running competition. I had been training and felt strong and confident that I would complete the race in a good time. I stood at the starting point; I took a few deep breaths and settled my nerves. “Bang” went the starting gun and we were off. My energy was high and I thought well what a start. As I crossed the finish line in 1st place, I was proud that all the hard work paid off.
