Hey Pt England did School Cross Country!! My team was Takitimu (Yellow). It was great my shoes were dirty I will tell you the whole story.
I could feel the adrenalin pumping in my body. I was very nervous about this, we all knew we had to run one kilometer.Mr Burt said “On your marks, get set, GO!!” I started to jog for a bit. The first puddle “Oh No” I said to myself. I ran through the puddle I was soaked but I still ran over the bridge.
One of the girls said “Which way do we go” and I said “Go left” then we both went left. When we were up to the steps we almost fell over going down. Then out of nowhere a puddle appeared and I got more wet then I was already. I finally got out of the swamp and I ran onto the grass.
But when I was running on the grass I started to sink in the grass as if it was quicksand!!. All of the teachers, mum’s and dad’s were cheering on their kids near the finish “GO!! GO!! GO!!” said the parents near the line I almost fainted but I was so close I didn’t want to give up. I was proud that I came 1ST place.
