My Cross Country
By Luke Kim
Today is our school cross country.The sky is blue and it is a sunny day.I am feeling excited about running for my house, super Kauri.
The cross country is separated into Year 7 and Year 8 events.The Year 8 boys run last that means I will be running in the last race.
When Mr. Potaka shoots the start gun everyone is running fast.Some people are pushing and saying bad words.I am thinking “I can do this ,don’t give up!”
Up the hill I run as fast as a cheetah but I can’t run for a very long time. On my 2nd lap I feel exhausted.I can’t stop because my house teachers and friends are cheering for me.
My cross country is successful.I have come 200th out of all Year 8 boys.I am happy to complete the cross country because it was the first time in my life I had experienced a cross country competition.
