Cross country

Hook: Oh my gosh I wonder what cross country is going to be like today.

Paragraph 1: On Thursday it was cross country. Cross country is an event and everyone does it at their school. I was so excited that I was going to run with my friends.  When I got to school I forgot that I had left my things at home. Luckily I had a spare T- shirt in my bag.

Paragraph 2: At school a couple of  people wagged just because they did not want to run cross country, but little children came to run. Some parents came along to watch their children and cheer them on.

Paragraph 3:  In cross country younger children run before the older ones because little children need to go home earlier. Once the bell had rung after lunch time, we had to go on the courts and sit down in our teams, ready to listen.

Paragraph 4:While waiting until it was our turn, I thought that I should go and wet my feet, because it was getting a bit hot. Chloe went to wet her feet too, so I was thinking I should wet her, and I did. The water was really fresh and cold. Chloe started screaming because of how cold it was.

Paragraph 5: After getting a little bit wet we saw that the year 8’s and 7’s were going on the bottom field to watch the little children. Chloe and I had to go with them. We all were watching the little children finish at the finish line and cheering them on. Next we were watching the year 7’s and 8 boys run 2 laps around the reserve.

Paragraph 6: Later on it was our turn because all the year 7’s and 8’s boys finished their 2 laps. They were really exhausted and sweaty. My heart was beating when I got up because I was shy and scared that I will be coming last. So all the year 8 girls and 7 girls walked to the start of the line on the top field. All of the year 7 and 8 girls looked confident but my friends didn't they were shivering because they were really scared about running.

Paragraph 7:  Starting on the start line getting ready to run was really scary. Mr Burt said “On your marks get set GO!!! and we started to run, some people sprinted but I just jogged so I wouldn’t start to get tired half way. As I was running I felt a little bit sweaty because the sun was just shining on my face like a light bulb.

Paragraph 8:  I was halfway to the finish line and I stopped because I was exhausted and really tired. I saw some of the year 7’s girls  running in front of me and they were nearly to the finish line going for another race. I was running to the finish line and I could hear people cheering me on, I was really happy that I made it and I was on my second run.

Paragraph 9: Running and running trying my best to get halfway to the bottom field was hard because I had to try and breath the best I could. I couldn’t stop running because I just wanted to finish the cross country with a smile on my face. As I was running I saw Chloe and Ane so I tried to catch up to them but it was really hard. I finally catches up to them and we were halfway to the finish line. We got to the finish line and I was huffing and puffing and all the student’s and teacher's cheered for all of us. Yay!!!!! we were finished.
