Cross Country 2012!!!!
BANG!! Everyone sprinted and ran trying to win the race. All the girls put on a burst of speed around the rugby field trying to be the top eight. YAY! Everyone shouted and cheered for their team mates. "Go Te Arawa!" all my friends said trying to cheer me on. My legs were getting tired but I didn’t want to give up so I jogged mostly through the grass. All the girls were looking back to see if anybody had caught up to them, but all the other girls were just walking.
Eww! Mud splattered around my clothes and my shoes were dirty and smelt really bad. The Reserve was muddy all over and I slipped down the steep steps as I was finding my way through the treacherous track. My arms were hurting and my legs were about to collapse as was sprinting so I started walking my way out of the track.
With determination and perseverance I was trying to run my best. I was gasping for breath as I was trying to run around the reserve the final time, trying to get my place in the top eight. The older boys ran passed me and I keep jogging and jogging. I could see the the finish line and I only saw 5 girls in my age group lining up to put their name on the list. When I ran to the finish line everyone was cheering. It was as noisy in a sports stadium. I was lucky enough to be in the top eight. Feeling really happy for my achievement I had a huge smile on my face.
