"Everybody line up outside please" called Miss Garden. "Cross Country is on" I cry in my head.I know I won't be able to finish it, I'll come last.
"Ten year old girls at the start line please". That's me. I start walking up in fear of the run. Oh I'm starting get butterflies and before I know it, I hear BANG !!! I start running and already I feel puffed out, with everybody watching it makes me even more nervous.
I need to keep going if I want to come in the top 5. I begin doing a little spurt past some girls as my breath is coming hard."Come on Kayla, your nearly there"I hear as I run. The finish line!!! I can see it. Now my legs start to power up the hill to finish.
"Keep running"I tell myself. I can hear people cheering for me. I have done it I've crossed the finish line knowing that I haven't come last. I came 5th. I'm so proud.
I really enjoyed Cross Country even though it was the longest, hardest and muddiest run, I still think I came a really good place.
