Cross Country

It was a cold and spitting day as I was running. I had numb feet, even though the sun was trying to shine. I felt nervous as I jogged along with my feet getting covered in mud. After the race I felt dizzy and tired. I had a stitch, but I just kept on running anyway. When I was near to the finish line I felt proud, as I had achieved my goal and come 5th. (Even though my sister - Mary had beaten me.)

In the holiday me and my aunty went shopping. We shopped at Westfield. We first went to Kmart to buy some clothes for me, for my cousin's birthday. While my aunty was picking my clothes, I was just playing with the the basketball. It took 30 minutes to find my clothes and shoes. Then we went to buy some Wendys. We bought a hot dog and a milk shake then we went home.
