My Day

Waking up at 7:00, to my alarm playing Black Betty. I simply just press the sleep button and fall back asleep for five minutes. Black Betty come streaming on again, once again I press the sleep button. There goes another five minuets. Suddenly my mom screams up the stairs to make sure that I'm up. I wake up and get ready only having ten minuets, but some how I make it. Arriving at the meet we start walking the path we're going to race on. When we get back we have a little time to relax before going on our warm up run. I use this time to take the spikes out of my running shoes because they are to long. In addition, I lay down talk to my friends. We then go on our warm up run, coming back with just a half an hour before we must race. Coach helps me put different spikes for my shoes, then I run over to the starting line. We do all of our warm ups, then take off our sweat shirts and sweat pants, and through them into a bag that will late be brought back to our tent. before I know he starts counting down from fifteen, then from ten, at five there is silence... "Boom" a gun shoot and everyone is off, including me. Suddenly I'm in a mob of people all running to the same place. Before I know it we past the one mile mark. I mix of thoughts linger in my head, some being that I just reach it and yet it seemed like miles, others being that I'm doing good and staying with my team mate like I wanted to. Running for what seems like for ever I finally reach the two mile mark, only a half of a mile to go, "I am doing good" I think to my self, still with my team mate. People around me yelling at us that we're almost there. turning the corner I reach the long stretch that leads to the end. I'm surrounded by parents, runners, and coaches. I run until finally the tree uncovers the wight banner I was looking for, I start to sprint, two people run past me, my team mate and a girl from a different school. I keep running until finally I reach the end, the place I was focused on getting to. 
The meet lasted a few more hours, my freinds and I spent the rest of it eating and cheering. Then they had awards which I didn't win, because although my efferts seemed tromendous, my time was not. At lest it wasn't for the jodges, to me my time was amazing, a new personal record infact. 
Eventually my mom drove me home. I came home wen't upstairs and blopped on my bed. I napped for three hours befor waking up and typing this blog, at the same time I skype with my cousin. Although, my day isn't over yet.
Thank you for listening,

  1. How in the world do you NOT wake up upon hearing "Black Betty?" That song makes me want to shake it or go to a dive karaoke bar and watch someone attempt to not mess up the lyrics.
