I was in the ski lodge, preparing for the race.
I gathered up my supplies and walked out the door.
The air outside was misty and cool.
I was a professional ski racer, and I was at the Winter Olympics.
I had rented a private lodge so people didn't mob me in the morning.
I drove my car to the bottom of the lift.
I rode up all the lift and I skiied to another lift that would take me to the top of the entire mountain.
I reached the top and looked out into the distance.
All the other competitors were at the top already, and I realized that the race was about to start. I had overslept.
People were already filling in, and in 5 minutes the sidelines were full.
The race is head to head, and the first one to make it to the bottom wins.
We lined up at the start.
