My heart was pounding as the countdown started and in just seconds, we were off. My mind was full of determination and my body was full of energy. I felt like a mad man running in that old brown sack. Suddenly my feet got a funny tingling feeling of pins and needles! My legs started to get a little weary from all the jumping and started heaving.
Gosh! It was tiring and all those little rocks hurt. Finally, I reached the end and my face fell straight into a bean bag. As I pushed myself up my mind buzzed with questions but I knew which one to ask first. “Did I win?” I asked my friends. “I’m pretty sure you did!” “Hope it happens again!” I said.
My friend asked, “Do you have springs in your legs?” I knew he was joking but I answered anyway, “Nope, race you to the end my friend,” said, so off we took again!
