“3, 2, 1, GO!" I jogged down the hill passing the other girls, and then I turned the corner. After turning the corner I had to run up the hill, boy that was tiring, but I wasn't puffed out yet! Now we went down a hill, through some trees and back in the bright yellow sun.
It was time to run up the big, tall hill. I jogged up the hill with sweat running down my face and a small painful stitch in my tummy. So far I was 4th. Finally we got to go down the hill, Yay! Now we went back the way we came. Oh no! Another hill!
Before I knew it a girl passed me, oh how it would be a dream to come top 5. (I have never come top 5.)
I was back in the school grounds. Almost there! I was on the field still in 5th place. Then I decided that I could run fast enough to pass the two girls in front of me, and I did it! I was 3rd now. I hope I will stay in this position until the end! Oh, another hill, I jogged up quite slowly. Then I was close to the finish line. I jogged in the middle of the court, everyone was cheering, and...and... I made it! I was 3rd. my dream had come true! It was quite different this year because all the fast girls apart from one, didn’t come top 5! That was a change. Then it was all over. The intermediate I am going to next year you can choose to do cross country. Should I or should I not do it? Anyway I was so glad it was over. I had a great time then ever! (Because it was the first time I came third) I can’t wait until inter- school!
Even though it is the last day of term 2 and Inter-School was ages ago I'm still going to write about this fun and tiring event.
I sat in the car thinking of what inter-school was going to be like. When we got there I was so excited! ( The event was held at Long Bay Primary School) After we had a trial of the course the races began. When the 10/11 year old girls were up, my heart started to beat as fast as a cheetah running, I was so nervous.
"3, 2, 1, GO!" I sprinted as fast as I could. Through the muddy hill we went. Then around the cones, through the trees and up the hill. I sprinted down the hill as fast as I could, I was totally puffed out. Then it was time for the GINOURMOUS hill. I jogged up the hill with a big stitch in my tummy. Almost there! Down the hill we go, around the corner, and around the corner again, and I was back where I started. I ran around the field and... I made it! I was so proud of myself though I came 8th to last. I had a great day, and I got an ice block after school!
