The prelude to the start. All falls quiet except for the voice in your head. You are ready.
The stage is set. The crowd is ready. This is it.
Keep your cool. Trust your training. Run your race. 110% percent.
The moment years in the making. The moment where dreams are decided by a hundredth of a second or a graze of the bar.
Disappointment and disbelief or an eternity of waiting before the results are posted.
Let the celebration begin! The journey continues to Rio.
