Run Just Run

Today was race day, and I had a good feeling about it.My two friends Bob and Eric were also entering the race. In the morning I took them for a run around the course but they were to slow.Although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress.We only had 10 minutes till the race and they weren’t getting any faster. But we knew that we had to go with it. At the start of the race Bob and Eric were at the back. But a few minutes later they were both at the front and in the lead. I couldn’t believe it but they had won the race!

  1. Hello Matthew,

    You made good use of the prompt phrase in your story about race day. It seems your friends, Bob and Eric, were holding back as they practised running with you and showed their true strength when, in the actual race, they were able to take the lead. Particularly in distance running, good runners know to pace themselves rather than running hard at the beginning only to tire early. Well done.

    I can see you are developing good writing skills. I only have one small suggestion I hope can help. We don’t normally start sentences with “but” as in your last two sentences. It could have joined two sentences or been left out.

    With your developing skills as a writer and your ability to share an interesting story, I hope you can continue entering the 100WC. There might be more stories about you and your friends, Bob and Eric, to share in the future.
