Cross Country

It was an ordinary Wednesday morning and as usual I walked in to school. But today was no ordinary day, today was Cross Country . This came unexpectedly. I was shocked, but luckily I had come prepared for this day because I've been coming prepared for three days already!

"This is a shambles", I murmured, nerves had started to come unexpectedly as the race was about to start. After that I said to myself "I can do this", soon I felt confident.

I stood up. My heart was pounding, I thought I had conquered all these nerves. Well theres no turning back now, I said.

BANG ,all the other girls took off with a burst of speed, but I had not, I was coming last, but that didnt matter because I was jogging, at that momment I realised my friends were behind me so I wasnt coming last.

My heart was pounding wildy, as I was exhausted. I was near halfway , me and my friends were still jogging because we wanted to save up energy for the finish line. I was desperate to cap,e up in the top ten but at this rate I dont think I am going to make it.While I was jogging I had noticed that there were alot of girls behind me because they all sprinted at the start.
I could feel the sticky mud rubbing between my toes.

Finally the finish line was in sight. I had gone through the playground, "i'm nearly there ", I said to myself, the finish line I had gathererd mommentum for the last sprint. Now was the time to use it.

The multitude seemed to get louder and louder by the minute. I closed my eyes when I crossed the finish line. I had crossed the finish line. I had opened my eyes and my friend Sylvia tapped me on the shoulder and said that we had come the 9th equal.

"At last", I shouted at the top of my lungs I had come up in the top 10 for my very first time in Cross Country. I was very proud and tierd at the same time.
