The 1500

The feeling of determination

Four laps to finish

You know you can do it

It’s all in your head

The sound of the gun

Spikes hit the tartan track

Stay in front

Don’t let anyone in front of you

I hear their breathing behind me

The wind whooshes past my ears

I pick up the pace

I race against the clock

The final sound of the gun

The final lap

I feel the wind’s resistance against my body

The aching of my legs, begging to stop

My breathing gets heavier

Sweat pours from my head

Suck it up

The last curve and straightaway are looming in front

They are coming for you

They want to beat you

But don’t you dare let up

My heart beats faster and faster

As I push and sprint past the pain

Yelling and cheering come from the stands

Push, kick it in, five seconds to make it your own

I hear my dad, mom, sisters, and teammates

 I run over the white line

The scoreboard clock has stopped

My time flashes across the board

This is my race and this what I live for

I love this so much! I can completely relate to this because I run the 1500 with you! I know how hard it is to beat the person right behind you, and you have to completely push through the pain to try and keep in front of them. Amazing job!!!
