The Real Cross Country

Walking down to the Reserve, I felt like I couldn’t do it. But I had to. We all hate Cross Country, but the Teachers love it, when we do it. Getting nervous, I lined up with all the other competitors. Go!!!!! Mr Burt exclaimed. I jogged at the start. Finally people were passing me. “ No”. I was coming first but then , one of the 9 year olds passed me.

Running through the bushes, it looked scary. There were muddy patches all around, and did I make myself muddy. My feet were aching. I could not feel my legs or arms. Cross Country is totally boring. Teachers these days.

I was nearly at the end. I could hear people cheering. Running around the corner, I almost slipped. There were Teachers telling us to turn left, turn right. It was so frustrating. “ Yay”, I made it. Finally it was finished. I came 9th.

Cross Country is harder than you think....... It was all with Perseverance.
