As soon as the bell rang, I started jumping up and down. Screaming in a happy way I was so excited. I sprinted inside ,then quickly and nervously got changed into my Takitimu coloured T-Shirt.
When I got to the courts I sat down and after a few minutes we headed down to the reserve. Hearing the three words READY, SET, GO, I sprinted off keeping at one pace. Passing the bridge I saw the 8 yr old girls just 2 minutes away from the little bridge .
With senior kids cheering me on it made me feel awesome.
Reaching the 1k line I had a very big smile. I started slowing down and so did my arms and legs. At that point I was walking. I was not happy so kept telling my self finish that race, finish that race, finish that race. With burning lungs I tiredly wanted to finish the race off properly. So with a burst of speed I sprinted tiredly to the finish line.
My favorite part about cross country is the running, but who knows I might hate it one day.
