On Friday it was the Cross Country. Laura, Kayla, Akayla, Jasmine and I were in the Year 2 race. Mr Sullivan did the blocks. I was trying to get past James who was leading us and I won. I got a red card. I was very puffed at the end and I was hot but I did my best. We get to go to Taieri Beach on Wednesday.
