  • 1. Personal Narrative
  • 2. A Successful Run I never thought I was a good runner, until the day in gym class when Iwon the mile race. The course was marked with colorful flags, and the sight ofthe flags seemed to fire me up. When Mrs. Hold, our gym teacher, blew herwhistle, I charged ahead. To my surprise, I was one of the leaders right away.About halfway around the course, I noticed a few kids grabbing their sides.Some kids even started walking. I felt tired too, but I kept running. Mrs. Holtcongratulated me when I was the first runner across the finish line. I thankedher and grinned. Now I think about running all the time. Maybe someday Iwill even get the chance to run in the Olympics.
