Last week, Redstone PS had their annual track and field events. In this blog, I will talk about my experience with this year’s track and field.
A week before the actual events, we had to sign up for our events. I signed up for all the field events, the 200m, the 400m, and the 1500m runs. When the first track and field day came, my class was the first outside. After a few minutes, the rest of the classes came outside. Then the girls and the boys were separated, so then we could go to our events. The grade 8 boys first event was the 100 m dash. Initially, I did not sign up for the 100 m but I decided to do it anyway. I asked the teacher if I could sign up along with some other students. Unfortunately, I was put into heat with some pretty fast people. In the end, I managed to get third place in the heat. After doing our 100 m we had to do the triple jump, which I also signed up for. Then after the triple jump, we had running long jump. After those three events, it was time for lunch and we didn’t do any more events.
The next day we continued our track and field events. We finished the rest of our field of events. After our field events, we did our track events. Our track events that day were the 200 m, the 400 m, and the 800 m. I participated in the 200 m and the 400 m. I didn’t do really good in any of them, but I still tried my best. By the end of the second day, we completed all our events except for the 1500 m run. On our third and final day, the grade 8 boys did their 1500 m run. Even though I did not get a really good time I’m still happy I managed to complete the run.
Overall, I’m really happy this year of my track and field. This year I managed to do all the events except for the 800 m. Even though I did the 1500 m I probably won’t do it again. In the end, I’m really happy that I managed to do so much track and field this year.
