2012 Cross Country

“Ohh NO!!” I said because it was the annual cross country. Sometimes I don’t like cross country but I just run for fun. I walked to school and thought of what kind of techniques I should use when I’m running. As I passed the school gate I saw my friend Jaylee but she wasn't going to run because of her ankle injury f the netball tournament. But there was also my other friend Vivienne who is a really fit person. She is really good at netball. I ran to them and start chatting about Cross Country. “YAY! Its going to be fun because we're not going to do BORING work”

“OK guys Stop” Mrs Lagitupu said. I waited for Mrs Lagitupu to give me permission to go to the toilet. I walked there with butterflies in my tummy. After I got changed into my colours (BLUE) I went a grabbed my sticker to wear on my t shirt to show information about me. I was so excited because I was going to be photographer for the Junior cross country and I was doing it with Vivienne who is my good friend.

During lunch the four colour house’s were walking around the school cheering and I was cheering for Tainui because that was my house colour and I also LOVE the colour Blue. “GO TAINUI” I say walking around the school but from the back I hear someone saying “GO TE ARUWA” I look and just laugh.

The bell rang and everyone gathered at the hard court except for the year six’s and five’s, they had to gather at the Pt England Reserve down at the beach where the toilets are. After that we ran back to school for our Cross country but before I ran I cleaned the mud of my shoe. Before I ran I took some photos of people running thru the finish line. Finally it's our turn to run, we walk up to the starting line. At the starting line I was really nervous, I didn’t really wanna run but I wanted to see if i could achieve my goal. I stood there waiting for the blocks to clap, I waited patiently but before we went Mr Burt explained some information about the course. “BANG” the clappers go. I start jogging once I got out of the gate I started to walk and I was already tired.

After all that running I was nearly at the finish line, along side me was Sylvia. It was close to the end Sylvia and I ran as fast as we can to the finish line. I ran thru the finish line and the crowd cheered and clapped. I was so exhausted and tired, i couldn't barely walk.
