“get set …….”

by


It is race-day and he’s anxious to get going. He has prepared for this day for months and he couldn’t be more ready! He nervously waits for the heat that he’s in to start. Jumping up and down to relieve the tension, and to warm up at the same time, he listens for the call to line up for the race.

He and the others get into their perspective positions and prepare for the whistle to sound. Then, he hears, “on your mark…” And at that he positions himself for a fast start. Then he hears, “get set …….” he thinks of nothing else but the track and then he hears …….. “go”.

As for how the race went, I guess you’ll have to wait and see!!
