Talk about a prize you want to win
You should say:
What prize it is
Why do you want to win
Everyone loves prizes, winning them makes one happy. Prizes also motivate us to work hard and prove the fact that hard work is key to success. I have not won many prizes in my life but one prize I would like to get would be the first prize in marathon race which is held every year in my city.
The race is organized by Standard Chartered Bank. It is held to spread awareness about diseases like cancer and also to make people aware about the benefits of healthy living. All the money collected from this race goes to a charity. The winner of the race gets a cheque of Rs 1 Lakh along with a trophy, medal and a certificate. The winner also gets a chance to represent the city in other marathon races held across the world.
Every year almost ten thousand people from our city participate in this race. The race is held in the first week of November, normally the first Sunday. Last year one of my best friends won the second prize in the race. He finished the distance of 42 kms in approx. 3 hours. After seeing him get the second prize, I felt motivated to participate in the race. I am not a professional runner but since then I have started running.
Nowadays I can run 30 kilometers in approx. 2.5 hours and I am working on improving my time. Hopefully I will be ready by November. Preparing for this race has made me healthy and I have also learnt a lot from running. If I do not win this year, I will keep trying until I win the prize.
