Havelock North Inter-school cross country.
On your marks, get set.... Go! The red horn blows!
My legs pound forward, heart beating fast. Nervous with a giant butterfly in my tummy.
I had been training for a brutal 2 kilometre race. Its called the Inter-school cross country and all the top 10 runners from each year group and schools in Hastings go to the Hawkes Bay show grounds to race against each other hoping to get in to the top 10 (you stand a podium.
I crossed the line proudly with a big grin.Face red. My placing was 45th better than the year before.
I was the 9th girl Yr 6 runner at H.N.P.S.
