My hands on the ground before the line,
One knee in my chest, the other in the ground.
A ribbon to be won; maybe to be mine.
BANG! The runners and I, we start with a bound.

All the girls in front of me are larger, only in height.
My legs kick into high gear.
And all those taller girls are out of my sight.
Three syllables, my name, are all I hear.

The finish line quickly approaches,
And I run faster, as if I am running from my Death.
“You won! You won!” I hear from the coaches.
I receive my trophy all out of breath.

The one-hundred meters are done.
The trophy, oh how it does gleam!
For the girl’s team, this is what I won.
A glance to the stands; my eyes meet smiles that beam.

I am a sprinter. I run the 100 meter dash. This is written from my perspective.

Somewhere around 15.34 i think.  i usuallly i finish in the top 3.  my first meet i got first in both sprinting and hurdleing.  I also just started track last year.  We used to have cross country (im not a long distance runner) but the school cut it.  Both my aunt and my uncle were in track and my aunt now coaches track and volleyball.  My dad was also in track, along with just about every other sport.

I'm not really sure. Last year was my first year on a track team. I think it might have been around 13. I think cross country helped me out alot though. I'm not really that good, but I never finish last or close to last. What is your best time?

That makes sense.  What's your fastest 100 meter time?

I always have an edge of competition, but it never really strikes me as a feeling, just my nature.

Really?  That's odd.  I have the feeling that I have to beat the other people in myheat that are from my school.

 When I run, I don't feel anything. No thoughts, theres not even any feeling in my legs. I run the 100 and 200 meter too,
