Anyway, the next few PE lesson we trained for Cross Country. I soon realised I wasn't the last person in but I wasn't the first person in. Which was good as I was in the middle of the fast runners and slow runners.
Soon, it was time to do it for real run. All of this is done in Houses. There are four houses all named after parrots: Kakas, Keas, Cockas and Mackaws. My brother and I are in Keas. So we all got into our different house 'pens' and waited there. I was really nervous. Because our race was second to last I was getting even more nervous by each minute that was passing by.
Finally, it was Year 6's turn to run. I knew I wasn't going to win any medals as I'm not that good at running. So there we stood, in a line, waiting for it to start. And GO! was all I heard. I started running at a slow pace so I wouldn't be tired as quickly as the others. My friend Iona was in front of me (she's a Kea), and as we got to the end I realised I had to sprint, so I did. I got in front to Iona and 2 other people but as soon as I was there I saw a blur of blue sprinting beside me. It was Olivia. She is the best at running. I couldn't overtake her.
I came into the finish line and was handed a number. I looked down and was so excited! My number was 18th! Out of 65! I was really surprised. I was the 6th, 7th girl to come in.
After this we were going to find out which house had won. The points were like this: I came 18th, Iona came 20th so our points in total was 38. Whichever house had the lowest points would win. And here came the moment it would be announced. Who won?
We all started celebrating as our Heads of Houses went to collect the trophy.
