As I stood at the starting line, waiting for Mr. Burt to yell “Go,” I felt as if i had butterflies in my stomach I was so scared but at the same time I was excited. When we started to run I was so tired and so were all my other friends but I didn’t stop. When we were getting closer to the finish line I started to sprint. As soon as I almost went past the finish line I looked around and I was one of the only person still sprinting. In cross country I came 9th and my cousin Jane came 8th it was a big improvement for me because last year, last year I came 15th. Next year i’m going to try and come 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
