“We have cross country today” Kitiona said to me. I was so scared because I don’t like cross country, and I don’t think anyone does. Throughout the week I was sick and I didn’t know about. My mum didn’t want me to do anything active because I had just recovered. So I was safe from the cross country run.
Our teacher was going around putting our house names and our year number on our hands and she was going to go past me any second. I was thinking of want to say so I couldn’t do the cross country. “What house are you?” She asked me. “Miss, I thought I wasn’t running”
“Who said that?”
“I just thought I wasn’t running?”
I was surprised because I thought that I was going to have to do it.
The year 8’s were the last ones to race, so during the little kids races, the house captains and some other helpers including me and other people, were helping to cheer on the little kids and help motivate our runners. “Who rock the party, who rock the party, TAINUI rock the party that rocks the party. When I say TAI you say NUI, TAINUI, TAINUI” That is what we said for our chants.
It was almost time for the Year 8 boys race. I was thinking of doing the run because I was going to be OTL (Only the lonely) and I didn’t want to because it was going to be boring. So I decided to do the race. I ran with my friend Ahsin and we didn’t come last, we came 4th to last.
Cross country was cool and it was fun as well. i can’t wait to do it next year.
