I step into line and shuffle forward. I look ahead and try to prepare for what's coming. I move a few more steps. I'm in line, the path I'm on is roped off. As I get closer anticipation builds, should I try and get out? I shuffle forward to the front of the line. I step into the car and sit down. A bar comes down in front of me. All I can do now is hold on for the ride.
I step into line and shuffle forward. I've done what I could to prepare for what's coming. I push forward a few steps. The path lies open before me. I'm nervous with anticipation as the moment to start gets closer. I step up to the line and take a deep breath. I lift my head and focus on the road ahead. The starters gun goes off and I run.
