papulin23 1 / 2 Dec 3, 2009 #1Hi there. Could you please correct something if anything is wrong? or give me advice on it? Thank youSince the beginning of my indoor track season, I had been picturing that day, the day that I would become the New York City champion in the 1000-meter race. I was preparing myself intensely both physically and mentally in the weeks leading up to the race. That day I was nervous but ready, and when the gun fired, I quickly made my way up to the first pack of runners and stayed with them for three entire laps, waiting to make a move on the last lap. Approaching the last lap, I moved to second place and then sprinted past the first runner with 150 meters to go, just thinking about crossing the finish line in first place. When I crossed the finish line I raised my arms in victory, overjoyed that my hard work had finally paid off.
