Today it was cross country at school. I thought I was going to go well, but I never do. I trained every day. “ YEAR 10 GIRLS GET READY TO RACE!,” Miss Sugar Plum called. It was time for my race. Mr Herrington shot the pistol… And I thought, “Well what a start”… AND it WAS!!! I was coming 3rd (a great position at this point). I kept my pace. Grace and I were now fighting for 4th. It came to 100m’s left, I used my sprint like in training. I ran passed Lily, Annabel and Emma. I finished 1st. YAY! I was so excited.
