Mile 1
Ok.
Here we go.
It’s a really nice day for this.
I can’t believe the weather’s this nice.
Maybe I should talk to the runner next to me…
…nah….it will take energy away that I’ll need.
It’s such a beautiful trail were running.
Is this pace faster than normal?
I wonder how far I’ve gone.
Oh boy….don’t start that already.
This is good.
Feelin good.

Mile 2
Hmmm…this is getting hard.
I’m not even halfway through the race.
I will be so excited when I see the first runners coming back toward me.
What if I miss them cause they’re so far ahead??
Ok this pace is definitely faster than I trained.
I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to finish this.
I’m already so tired and my body hurts.
I have another whole mile to go…
I dunno about this…
It would be embarrassing to stop now.
I will not be a walker!!
I’m runnin this whole thing…even if it kills me.

Mile 3
This is stupid.
I hate this.
Why did I sign up for this??
This is the last 5k I’m ever doing!
That’s what I said last time…but this time I mean it!!
This hurts.
This isn’t fun!
Stupid, stupid idea.
I’m gonna die.
That’s it.
This is how I’m gonna die.

Last 500 Feet
I hear cheering.
Oh my word…I may not die before the finish line.
Wow.
Ok…I can do this….I can do this….
Last stretch….time to sprint.
That’s my name!
Cheering is so helpful.
Ahhhhh!!!
I did it!!
Breathe.
Water.
