|Begin your writing here: Today I received a letter from the MHC (Mountain Heights Club). I read it and they wanted me to compete in their mountain climbing competition that they are hosting on thursday and it was tuesday so I had 2 days to practice. Obviously I wasn’t professional at climbing mountains and I didn’t have gear for it so I went to the mall first and got the gear. After practicing for the last 2 days the time has come.
I drove to the location that they told me to go to and felt anxious. Once I arrived at the place and I saw a guy waiting for me at the entrance. He helped me suit up and I got my gear ready. I saw multiple contestants at the entrance waiting to be called out. After we got called out we went to the beginning line and prepared. Once we were ready we saw this guy with a megaphone and he yelled “3,2,1 GOOO!” I ran as fast as I could and started climbing. As I was climbing I saw this photographer taking photos and videos of me. I finally reached the finish line and I won! The prize was 1K.
