Cross Country 2012

“Man I’m nervous for today”, I said to my friend Samuela. I really didn’t want to do cross country but there was no excuse not to do it. My house is TAINUI. After a while I found a technique that might help me to do better than before, and that was to stick at one pace and a steady jog.

“12 YEARS OLD BOYS, GET READY FOR CROSS COUNTRY” Mr. Jacobson said to us. I started to get nervous as I was walking up with my mates. 'BANG' and we were off. I was thinking to myself “Steady jog, steady jog”. I wanted to run together with my mates because I wanted some company.

As I was running the treacherous track, all I could hear was a squelching noise from my shoes, and when I looked back down on my leg, I could see splattered mud on my leg which splattered back. The track was kind of tricky to maneuver. I was slipping and sliding as if I was on ice.

I loved cross country this year and I had fun with my mates. Can’t wait for next year.


  1. Hey Ahsin
    This post about the Cross country is great, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!. You put lots of information in this post About Cross Country That you showed not tell. I like all the great vocab That you have used in this like congress, memorialise, and many more. I think you need to work on checking your work because some of these sentences don't make sense. Anyway, keep up the great work that you are doing Crusader.
