The gun goes off
Panic
A burst of electricity passes right through me
Adrenaline
A sprint to the first blockade
Speed
A leap over the barrier
Height
A sprint, a leap
Repetition
A white line of victory beneath my feet
Joy
A cloth ribbon pressed between my shaking fingers
Victory

Wonderful description of a race. The abrupt summary words really help give the feel of a race.
