Arriving at school, I see all the gear, and I say to myself ''What an Ambush!'' Mr Burt has tricked us and has decided to put on a Cross Country for the whole school. I murmur to class and say ''It was only suppose to be our team'' That's what Ms Garden said.

Before the race was about to start, I had butterflies in my tummy. I was hoping it was about to rain any minute because I felt scared and didn't want to do cross country.

Suddenly a sound went BANG! the 10 year old girls dashed past me as I jog behind everyone keeping my pace. I start to past one person at a time.

Passing the gate, my body was aching and my knees were burning, but I knew I had to keep on going. Half way there, a feeling of lethargy passed through me, as I am near the finish line. I say to myself ''CHAMPIONS NEVER GIVE UP!''

Coming out of the gate, and going across the playground, Seini Mino jogs up to me and we are close to the finish line. We gather momentum against each other and we come a tie. We are coming and we hear the crowd cheering us on. It felt great.

As we walk down from the field I felt exhausted and puffed out. I also felt proud that I had done it, and finished the race.

  1. Hi Sylvia It's me Makalita I have just finish reading your story about Cross Country. When you were talking about having butterflies that's what I first felt, I always feel that way when it is Cross Country. I think your story is cool because you use interesting words.
