The start and the finish

This is what I typically look like at the start of a race:

This is what I typically look like a few meters from the finish:

Before races, I am smiling. I am wearing more clothes. I am with my friends.

Seconds before the finish, I am scowling. My hands do that thing where they are open with fingers spread out. I am alone.

 

Starts are exciting. 

But, finishes are just as exciting.
