Cross Country

St Pius X school was doing cross country. There is always a lst, 2nd and 3rd. There are also helpers   Cross country is a one year event.  Cross country is a sport event that involves long distance running.   When you are running towards a driveway look before you run to see if there's a car reversing out and when dogs are barking walk past it until you're a little far from that dog then run.  The whole school gathered together in the tennis courts. Each person runs on their age group.  

First my age group was running. age 9 to 13  had to run around the block. My age group ran around the block twice.  There is always a person who starts the race.  Go! I paced myself down our school driveway and turned I try to keep up with the others but I wasn't fast enough to keep up.  

Every time I get tired I power walk until I get my breath back.  The 2nd lap I ran up the hill and power walked down. The helpers were cheering me on like I was on the Olympics long distance running.  I ran up our school driveway and ran to the courts I didn't make it to the top 5 to score a point for my team.

The juniors were running around the field I was cheering the juniors during their long distance run.  After the juniors cross country we went back to our classrooms and tidied it up.  Mr Coakley announced the winning team on Friday, the winning team was Tuis.
