Cross Country

video
Nervously waiting on the hard concrete, I challenged myself to beat my mates at today's cross country. My legs were cold and muddy and I was feeling awfully tired and crazy. When I caught up to Max he started sprinting, but I kept going all the way to the finish line and beat him.
