Winning Cross Country


Cross Country

Cross Country

On Tuesday May 19 we had our school cross country.  I had butterfies in my tummy.

Then the year 4 boys lined up, then Mr F said on your marks, get set, go!!!!   Then we went off.  Then I was in front of everyone there.  I had to run 2 laps around Glenview Park.

At the end I won. I got picked for the interschools.

A few weeks later we had the interschools.  It was the 11th of June at Resthills Park.

About 15 minutes into school Mrs T came and got me from class.  We went in the car.

It was the year 5 girls, then the year 5 boys.   Then it was the year 4 girls after it was the year 4 boys (which I was in ).  I was on the line ready for the man to say go!

Then he said go! But I was not ready so I ran as fast as I could and I was winning? I was sprinting the whole time and I was the winner.  I had no more energy left.  After the year six races we were given certificates if we got 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th.
