All City Track Meet
My class got to go to an all city track meet!!!!
I did the 75 meter dash and I made the FINALS!!!
I ended up getting 4th out of 8!
Since i'm in fifth grade and you can't do many sports through school, this was my first ever track meet. It was one of the things that I will remember from fifth grade.
Waiting for my event was like torture but I guess Professor McG. would love that. (She's the master of torture:) I watched to of my guy friends get first places for the 50 meter in two different heats. Then I watched my friend Goldilocks do amazing in the shot put. Then another friend Violet went to do the 200 meter and got 2nd place. I waited until finally, it was time for my event, the 75 meter. I was running it with my friend Taryn adn my friend from another class, Mariah. I was in the very last heat and I got 2nd place with a time of 12.35. Just hearing my friends yell my name, telling me that I could win gave me confidence. I was in the first lane but it didn't matter cause it was in a strait line. Then I saw the starter of the race put his finger on the trigger and BOOM! I started running and adrenaline pumped through my body. All I concentrated on the finnish line. Everything else seemed of unimportance. Before I knew it, I ran through the finnish line and got 2nd.
I waited after the 400 meter and the 800 meter until finally, the speaker's voice boomed through the stadiom. It said "Here are the finalists for the 75 meter dash..." I couldn't belive it when they called my name. I couldn't even hear anything else but the chearing and yelling. I went down to the track and waited. Professor McG. would be proud fo me for being so tortured at the starting line cause I had to wait five minuets until I got to race. I couldn't hear anything but the boom from the starting line and finally I raced across the finnish line. I got 4th with a time of 12.12. I felt great when people kept coming up to congratulate me. Finally it was time for one of my favorite races even thought I wasn't racing. The Relay Race. The girls realy did amazing and got 3rd place. Then something else amazed me. I was the boys relay team come out and they got...1st!!!! I couldn't belive it! We were all disapointed when we had to leave, but hey we can do it again through school in 6th grade...
