hundred word wednesday – “1600”

Another numerically titled story comin at ya. You can’t handle all these numbers.

Breathing heavily, Mark started to doubt that he was fit enough to finish this. He had run a mile before, plenty of times. It used to be nothing. Keep pushing.

Halfway through the third lap, he started to feel a clicking in his hip. That can’t be good. Upon finishing the third lap, the clicking had turned into a shooting pain, and he had to slow down. Not wanting to risk injury, he stopped halfway through the last lap.

He had tried, but there was nothing he could do about it. He was older than he used to be.

  1. Ugh, this has already started happening to me! My knees just don’t hold up like they used to.
