Hello, my name is Cody and I am in Buzzards and I will start to describe what it was like in the cross-country race, from the very beginning to the end. I left school at 2:15pm and it was about 25 minutes to get to the cross country race.

The race was a two mile race. When I got there I saw a lot of people and there were a lot of children and adults. As I was walking through, I felt nervous and a weird feeling in my stomach. I then walked over to the entrance, where all the racers were. After that, I walked over to the starting line. Everyone was there and they all started to walk around to see where they were running. l followed the crowd with my friends: Thomas and William. Then, l went to get some water after l went for the walk. A few minutes later, the year 5/6 children went to the starting line and it was packed with runners and some familiar faces. The lady that runs the event explained the rules to all of the runners then she removed the rope giving the signal to the racers to run.

The sound of the horn was like a car beeping in front of your face. The crowd was like elephants stamping and pushing you from every direction. When all the carnage was over it was as peaceful as anything you could imagine. That moment of peace, reminded me that I was in a race and I was running with my friend Thomas, who I completely forgot was there, until he started to encourage me to not stop running.

I remember I fell over and a kind generous boy came over and helped me up. That boy told me his name but unfortunately l forgot it. Anyway, l could hear the sound of people cheering, and at this point l was getting tired but l knew l was halfway through. I couldn’t give up yet... My legs where in pain my chest was tight and I couldn’t breathe properly. I knew I should ignore everything: noises, smell and even Thomas. I started to sweat and l knew l was near the end! l sprinted down the hill and heard my dad’s cheering voice, cheering me on as usual. I thought to myself, that is it! Then, without even thinking, l ran as fast as I could. I wasn’t sure whether l was breathing and all l wanted was to reach the end of this exhausting journey.

l couldn’t be happier when l spotted the narrow rope where everyone ran through when they finished. I came 49th and ran to my dad, l flopped on the floor with exhaustion and I had the best sleep that very same night.
