My Cross Country Run

In the morning I came to school with excitement, knowing that the day had finally arrived, but let me tell you the full story. It all started two weeks before August the 17th on Thursday when my class (room twenty) split up in the afternoon (because they do kapa haka in my classroom). I went to my old classroom and saw my old teacher Mr Barks, he’s a cool as Canadian. So yeah I was doing my same old writing when Mr Bark’s tells me to pack up and go I was confused it was only 2.30pm.

It looked like he wasn't kidding around, so I packed up and went back to my class and then suddenly my friend burst out of his class saying we had cross country practice!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!”I said with dread but there was a positive side, there was a teacher handing out skipping ropes. “Hey kids you can skip or run.” My jaw dropped. I wanted the skipping rope. Unfortunately I didn’t get one even though there were like 50 of them and so I slouched to the start line.

Quickly the two weeks went past. The day of the Cross Country race had arrived.  I saw my two best friends and they were actually happy.Our plan was to run together and finish as one. They were also happy because it started at 12:30.

But lets  just skip my story to when we started the cross country race. Sadly only me and one of my friends Tau ran, my other friend was too sick to do it. By the time we got to the beach Tau and I were both lagging. There was one part when the mud went up to my knees and we were both shouting !!EXTREME!! It was like a jungle the mud,the hills,big tree’s,zig zags.Tau and I finally finished I was so glad

Smoking can harm you. Cigarettes have 4000 chemicals that can cause cancer and can cause changes to your appearance. .Also the money you can save is substantial around 8000 dollars a year. Cigarettes contain harmful chemicals from everyday products. I recommend that you never start smoking.

Smoking gives you cancer I know you know that but the cancer can be in any part of your body. Cigarette have around 40in  4000 chemicalsthem it conta0ins chemicals including Benzene0  (petrol additive), Formaldehyde (ecmbalming fluid), ammonia (nail polish remover)(fly spray)(jet fuel).The tar in your lungs will give a bad cough it will feel like you're coughing up a lung so I hear.So people have to get amputations (get limbs cut off) beacause the blood stops flowing to those arms or legs.By smoking you triple your chance of getting cancer.

Not only will it affect the inside of your body it will affect the outside and you can get bad breath which will smell horrible,you will have yellow fingernails and burnt fingertips and black teeth and rotting gums.The chemicals from the smokes can you skin to tighten and can give you some wrinkles.The effects of smoking is not worth it to me so i'm never going to start.

If  you smoke one pack a day you can save up to around 100 dollars a week,400 dollars in a month and 8000 dollars a year for one pack of smokes.You can save a substantial amount of money if you you don’t start at all.The addictive drug will make you wanting more and more until you smoke a pack of cigarettes a day.

I reckon teens start smoking because of peer pressure and everyone around them is doing it and they pressure them.People just want to fit in so they start and can not stop.

Valerie tried to defend her gold medal but she just could not surpass her opponent Nadzeya Ostapchuk and she came in second place taking home the silver . Trying to hide her tears as she walked to the podium her sadness and disappointment showed through.  At the end of the day she lost by 0.64m.  It was emotional night as she lost the a gold medal but we're still proud of her .
