Hello! I haven't written for ages, so happy New Year for ages ago.
For the last league race, I came 10th, finally achieving Top 10! Then I did the Southerns race at Parliament Hill, with a really steep hill in it, even bigger than the Hill of Doom, and this hill was right at the start of the race. I came 102nd out of 267 I think. Next, I competed in the Schools races. I ran for my school, and won! Then I ran for my district, and came 14th, but 7th out of the Year 8s (it was against Year 9s as well, as was the race where I won!) Then I raced against Year 8s and 9s again, where I raced for my county, and I came 64th I think, out of about 150, maybe. Finally, and this is my most recent race - and last cross-country of the season - I raced for my county again, just against Year 8s, and I came 12th. I was very happy with that performance as I got out well, took the hills well, and had a good finish!
Now, it's to the track. I was signed up to compete at an Open Meeting, in the 3000m, but unfortunately it got cancelled. Thankfully, I have another Open Meeting on Sunday, where I will most probably be competing in the 800m and either 600m or 300m - or 1500m and either 300m or 600m. Then in two weekend's time, on Saturday, I have a league meet. I don't know what distance and/or event I will be competing in yet, but it will probably be 1500m or 800m, as you cannot do both at a league meet. I will be racing against Year 9s and possibly Year 10s... so I'll just try and keep up with them! I will probably get a good time though.
