We were running a large loop around the streets in our neighborhood. The week before the race, I ran the course many times for practice and felt ready for this race. After the half way point, I got a cup of water and poured it over my head to refresh myself. It felt so nice that I sprinted the rest of the race. While I was running the race, my siblings were at work making a me a sign to cheer me on. As I made my way to the finish line, my mom, sisters, and brother cheered me.
When I had finally finished, I had run the race in 23: 45: 38 and came in 5th place in my age group and 20th overall. The fastest girl in my age category ran the race in 20:43:61.
