Even though I knew I had to do it.
I was super nervous.
The start was 2 minutes away.
The boat was drifting in front of the start line.
Suddenly someone said
ON YOUR MARKS GET SET…
My heart was beating so much,
I thought it was coming out of my body.
After a while my hands were trembling.
I thought just think about the race I thought.
Legs stinging, arms burning.
Keep going, keep going.
There it was flags to the right.
People to the left.
The finish line,
I had won it was all done.
