cross country

I felt really nervous thinking back at the long race. On Friday last week Point England school had cross country. Cross country is when you have to run quite far, like running more than 2 kilometres.

We all had to go in order from age 5 to age 13. Finally it was our turn (12 year old boys) to race. I felt really nervous. ‘’Bam’’ went the clappers. We ran as fast as we could. As we came to the first corner it was very muddy and slippery.

When we went through the first exit out to the farm on to the field, we all get soaked wet with mud. Out of breath as I run past the first teacher, Mrs Lagitupu,  we go around the field into the bush walk. We catch up with the 12 year old girls.

Then we crossed over the first bridge. As I look the terrain gets muddier by the minute. Then I went down the stairs through the bushes past the trees out to the other side. We had to go back into the bush walk on the other side. As I go in I see a glimpse of  Ahsin so I picked up my pace and ran as fast as I could to pass him.

‘’HA’’ as we cross the bridge. We then went past the farm shack around the corner and then we get to the patchy muddy grass. We go around the field to Mr Harris and back past Ms Oano. Wataa, Kingston, Ashin,  Crusader and I were walking until Crusader ran and so we all did.

‘’Wow’’ I couldn't believe it! I finished the race so exhausted. I went to the toilets to clean up the mud on my shoes and my clothes. I felt really tired.

  1. Hi Junior

    Your recount was really interesting to read because you described your experience quite clearly. I enjoyed reading the 4th paragraph because you used some clever words like 'terrain' and 'glimpse'. Well done Junior.
