On the twentieth of August the whole of Point England School had our school cross country. It was on the top field next to the Reserve.
Before the race began I was feeling nervous as we were clumped together in our age lines. Suddenly the clappers banged. We charged off down the field. I left people behind me during the race, I tried not to stop so I didn’t.
When I came out the gate I could feel the lumpy mud stuck in between my toes and it was squashy, slimy and also smelly. Have you ever had cross country at your school before? At the finish I felt so thirsty and happy that I came fourth. Finally cross country was over.
