Step up on the block. Deep breath;
Toes curled over the edge. Look
Straight ahead. Flags eye level;
Water below. Concentrate.
"On your marks!" Hands grab the block;
Eyes on the finish. BANG!

Robert Lee Brewer's Wednesday Prompt today was "Preparation" and for some reason I was reminded of a time many years ago when I used to swim competitively. That moment right before the start when you have to be 100% ready to fly off the block and into the water. The rush was amazing.
