It was finally Glenview School cross country at the nearby park. On the 29th of May the whole school came together to run it.
First came the Juniors. I watched them speed around the field like a cheetah. My friend came third. Next was the middle syndicate’s turn. Mila came first she is also my friend. Then it was the year five turn. I felt scared. We warmed up. Then Miss Mau said, “line up”. Mrs McMorran had the clappers.
Clap,we were off! Feet were stamping. I was almost at the first corner where I saw Mrs Jennings. Puffing to the second corner noticing Mrs Martin . Leya whizzed to the front like a flash of lightning. I heard all the parents yelling. I was just going to slow down when Miss Pope told me to keep going. I was running like a greyhound. Speeding to Mrs Peden , she was saying, “You can do it”. I was running to do my second lap.
Speeding past all those cool teachers made me feel like I love running. I saw Kylie and Mac by my side. I was racing Kylie to the finish line. As our feet touched the line my heart was pounding like a beating drum. It was a tie! After that I got a drink. What a sporty day!
