My heart beating loudly in my chest is the only sound I can here The air whipping past my face tries to curb my inertia but I just press on harder and harder As I make my turn to go into the straight-away the next man in the relay team comes into sight I push my legs harder and harder but I cannot make them move any faster There is only one hundred meters left to go before the instant I have to pass the baton the next runner As I am speeding down the lane like a jet about to lift off I see the fans cheering in my peripheral vision but I remain focused on my objective ahead of me I move closer and closer to the red zone now counting my steps and pacing off the distance in my mind to the sprinter ahead of me I ready myself and keep telling myself be patient wait then Go I yell as he harnesses his adrenaline for a good start I again have to make another critical split second decision When should I give him the baton There can be no mistakes on the hand off If I miscalculate my steps it could be disastrous for the team As I sprint at his newly energized heels I yell Stick He reaches his arm back in a robotic-like manner and I slam the baton in his hand so he will not lose a handle on it It is a successful hand-off and my body jars as I try to bring myself to a quick stop My journey is over but the next runners has just begun Track is a big part of my life and it holds much more significance to me than just running I would not even get the opportunity to set foot on the track if I did not practice several hours a day running the same stretch
