  1. I liked the 800 m run because it was fun but exhausting too.
    I heard people cheering for their house colour over and over.
    I saw people running and people jogging the two laps.
    I felt tired and extremely proud.
    I wonder who was running in the boys run and the girls run.

  2. I loved the hurdles because it was exhausting but fun I herd people cheering for their house color.

    1. Remember Cailin, a snapshot piece of writing needs to be very descriptive and should include a group of sentences that describe your senses. It was great to see you have used a powerful word in exhausting.
