Cross Country

Anxiously waiting to start cross country, my heart was pounding and it just felt like butterflies. I really did not want to run. Nervous excitement filled the air as everyone was eagerly waiting

Approaching the start line Mr Burt said “On your marks, get set, GO!” A burst of speed came out as everyone dashed powering ahead and I was coming first. The undulating track with tight corners twists and turned while I had burning lungs.

As we got halfway it felt like it was never going to end. I challenged myself to come in the top four. My feet were killing me as I slowed down determination and perseverance, when I was on my face.

Puffing my heart out I felt that I was unable to continue. Sprinting to the finish line we saw lots of people cheering as I crossed the finish line. I was surprised that I came third.

I felt good as this day ended with a blast. I was so exhausted that I nearly slept during the last race.
