“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.
