As I woke up I cringed' because I knew we ere having a team Cross Country. but I still got out of bed and walked to school reluctantly
In the cold and raining weather, surely it would be postponed in
“No” our race is about to begin. The ten year old girls are starting to line up, and I can feel butterflies are starting to enter my body. They have come because I am so nervous. I’m panicking, my breath is coming hard I can’t stand to come last.
Right on cue Said “Mr Burt” as we lined up to go and race.
I was scared on your marks get set go. When I sore the other
Competitors spurting down the track. I through I was going to lose.
Half way around the field my energy drained out.
As we just gone out the gate all the spongy, watery, gluey,
And slimy mud went through my fingers as I slept and “splash”
I still got up and kept going until the very end. I can hear people cheering other people on. I looked up and saw Ala crossing the finish line and then Selena.I was like I need to get to the finish too,
I said in my head ( Champions never give up).
When I zoomed past lot’s of people I said in my head(yes I did it.)I know I didn’t come first or second but unless I crossed the finish line. As people were cheering me on and other people on, I just said in a tired, Trembling voice I have finally done it.
When I sat down on the grass, I felt tired. But I had a rest but my heart was still pounding. I felt worn down down. But when Mr Barks said Eight year old girls to the start line all the girls went. I asked mr Barks can I run again, I had confidence to run after I had
had rest to run with the eight year old girls.My leg weren’t tired enough.But Mr barks said “no”.
