Over the finish line

Over the finish line

in the tent. getting called time after time. finally me.on thursday the 5th of march we had Interschool Athletics. At Victora park, Kaponga.

Take your marks set. the gun fired. my legs taking me as fast as they can. Bolting off like a rocket. Passing people time after time. 5,4,3,2. kyah just ahead of me. shooting threw the long grass. Pulling my strength together. going 50 miles an hour .

as soon as i turn the corner i could see Mr Cittendens proud face. side by side kyah and i race. Coming down the home straight this moment. My face starts to stretch out with a big wide smile. Coming first now second. Kyah stool the spotlight. Starting to kick into gear. The crowd bursting with cheer. Neck and neck thats how close it is. shes running away with the spotlight. 50 meters to go. chasing after her like my whorst enmey. 20 meters, 10 ,5 going crazy as i chase her down. As i glide over the finish line i thought i was going to beat her but she did. There is always next year!

Today at Opanake pools and high school we had the mount spa triathlon. its where 8 schools compete from around south Taranaki but not Hawera. I done the under 9 girls triathlon by myself. the swim was first. I was the 25th girl because one could only go at a time. you had to do freestyle a length up and a length back. you had to touch the wall go under the rope and push off at the wall and do a length on the way back on the other lane. Which is 50 meters. We had to touch the wall then go up the ladder and walk round the pools to the door. Then we could start running to our bikes on the other side of the field where the transition was . We had to put our helmet and shoes on so we could ride our
bikes on the road and that is the road rules that
you must where a helmet. I got to the gate
and got on my bike and started riding up the road
on left side. The first corner we had was just when we got on our bikes. I could see three people just in front of me. Biking as fast as I can catching people and passing them time after time. When I got back to the transition somebody took my bike and I started my 1km run around the high school field two times tired but pushing myself to not stop because that not what a triathlon is for. At the end I got 15th and my tome was 29.21 is a good time. It was fun to do.
