Cross Country.

On Friday the 19th of August Pt england school  had  Cross Country Day. It was after lunch, and before lunch we had to change in our house clothes. Then the bell rang and it was time to do some Cross Country running.

For Cross Country I was in Te Aurere the Red Team. I tried my best because I was running like a cheetah and jogging when I ran out of breath. Also I had a stitch when I was running too. I was a champion in Cross Country because I can run 10000 m around Pt England School.

Derek Redmond.

Derek Redmond is a runner in the Olympic games 1992 in  Barcelona. He felt very nervous before his game and worried that he might not win. Before the race they lined up in their lanes and off they go.

In the race he was very fast like a cheetah. He stopped because he ran to fast and broke his hamstring at the back of his leg. He felt very sad and disappointed.

His dad helped him by running with him to the finish line. The race taught me that you can never give up because Derek Redmond trained for 4 years and that you never quit, you keep on going.
