As I was waiting on the courts for our turn to race I was shivering with cold in my jumper. I was nervous and anxious to get this race over and done with. I am sure everyone had a goal and my goal was to beat Kingston, I beat him last year and I wanted to do it again this year. I had butterflies in my stomach as my legs were shaking and my heart was racing, until finally Miss. Jarman called us up to get ready for the race.
We were standing and waiting and standing and waiting then “BANG!!!” the clappers went and we sprinted of. I sprinted as hard as I can because I was squished between the bunch of boys. They were pushing and shoving as I started to pick up the pace. My legs were pumping as I started to leave people behind. Kingston was beating me but I still ran to catch up to him and finally beat.
The race was about to finish and I caught up to Kingston and Waata but we decided to all finished at the same time. We were walking and people started to pass us, but then I said “When we get to the fence lets run again. We were near the fence and Waata sprinted off, but me and Kingston and I finished at the same time. It was finally over and I was dehydrated. I had a dry mouth as I was dying for thirst. I knew that I gave it my all and I was happy that it was over. We went to wash our feet and watched the other races finish. I was happy that it was over.
