This term is my favourite for many reasons but the biggest reason is because it’s Track and Field season! Track is my favourite sport because although I love cross country running, Track suits me best. Sometimes I get frustrated at track because it rains and we have to practice in the gym and because it is easy to get hurt. On Thursday we had to go in the gym and I badly hurt my ankle. Right now I am limping because of the pain. I love the Track meets at the University of Victoria track because it makes me feel like I am in the Olympics! It is a huge meet that only happens twice so you have to savour the time. My favourite race is the 800 metre run (a.k.a 2 and a half lap) because it is long distance running and that is what I do for fun! Last year at the 1st race it was pouring rain and it was SUPER windy and cold. But of course the race was still on. Over 150 kids, sitting in the bleachers, in shorts and T-shirts, ( gym strips) for 5 hours. I hope this year it is sunny! Running is always a fun way for me to express my feelings. If I want to sprint I am frustrated, angry, or tired. If I am running long distance I am happy or excited. I also love to do long jump in the sand pit. It is always fun to compare lengths of the jumps! Yesterday at practice we were playing illumination running for 3 rounds and the second time I won out of 60 people! I felt so good of myself! Running is definitely my sport!
