Weet-bix triatlon

I walked to the Transition area with my bike and ran down the 8 year olds line I put all my stuff down with butterflies in my tummy. I listened to all the chattering while I was strutting to the rss tent. I finally saw Atlanta she was at the courier post tent with her dad. I went to the ASB tent and played a game of frisbee and I won a frisbee. Then I went to courier post tent and got a tattoo of a truck. I disappeared to the rss tent. Then they called the 8 year old girls my heart thumped really fast. I was nervous and shaking. Then I went into the pool area looking a the people in the pool going as fast as they could. I was dreading this moment because there were a lot of people sinking and needing a fluttaboard. Finally it was my turn I got a fluttaboard hoped into the water with the other kids. Then the lady blowed a whistle and we were of like bullet. Everyone was in a mess and rushing on top of each other. I was sinking with people splashing and kicking there feet in front of me and behind me people were on my legs making my legs go down. I'm nearly at the end and I had to go to the bottom of the pool and push of because my legs were getting sore. I finally got to the end and hoped out and ran to the Transition area. I ran down the 8 year old line and found my bike and dried myself and got my top and shorts. I quickly put my shoes on and helmet and ran my bike. Then I hoped on my bike and went like a bullet pushing as hard as I could. People cheering us on and i'm passing lots of people. I'm heading up a hill pushing my feet. Going down the hill to the bridle track lots of people puffing and panting. Nearly at the end of the bridle track going through the esplanade to the Transition area. Getting off my bike taking off my helmet and ran a big loop panting and puffing
while I ran. I walked a bit and ran I got the stitch. I was nearly at the finish line I sprinted across the line and got a medal from Temepara Bailey. I felt proud. I got a cup of water and got a photo.

Reflection: Next time I would jog at the start. I did good at not stopping.
I think if  I was a  bit more athletic I would not puff as much

My camp drafts

WALT: Entertain

I have these drafts but I haven't got a puplished one so here are my drafts

Draft 1

We got in the car and talked the whole way we were bubbling with exitment to get to THAT creepy place. We jumped out of the car in a mess of laughter and started running we were so happy about going to the creepy cave. When we finally got to a giant huge hole. I walked in I had to lower my head. Turns out it's not that big. I took a few steps and then a stream of water came rushing into my shoes the water went swish swish swish. The walls were slimy like a toad. There was crayfish in the water there was little and big ones. Because the cave is dark and tightI kept bumping my head on the roof of the cave luckily I was wearing a helmet. I crouched down most of the time. When we got to the end we turned of all of our touchs then we saw lots of glow worms they looked like tiny lanterns glowing at night. I didn't want to go down the tight space. We went back out I was scared stiff. When we went to see the wetas the where so big.

Draft 2

We got in the car and talked the whole way we were bubbling with exitment to get to THAT creepy place. We jumped out of the car in a mess of laughter and started running we were so happy about going to the creepy cave. When we finally got to a huge hole. In my head I was saying do it do it. I walked in I had to lower my head. Turns out it's not that big. I took a few steps and then a stream of water came rushing into my shoes the water went swish swish swish. The walls were slimy like a
toad. There was crayfish in the water there was little and big Ones. I kept bumping my head on the roof of the cave luckily I was wearing a helmet. I crouched down most of the time. When we got to the end we turned of all of our touchs then we saw lots of glow worms they looked like tiny lanterns glowing at night. I didn't want to go down the tight space. But the cave was calling to me " go do it go do it". We went back out I was scared stiff. When we went to see the wetas the where so big. When the people that went in the tight space and went in with no adults came out I felt a bit anoyed with myself. I said to myself "I should have done it".

We got in the car and talked the whole way we were bubbling with exitment to get to THAT creepy slimy spooky place. We jumped out of the car in a mess of laughter and started running we were so happy about going to the creepy cave. When we finally got to a huge hole. Scary thoughts came into my head like you will be scared to death. In my head I was saying do it do it. I walked in I had to lower my head. Turns out it's not that big. I took a few steps and then a stream of water came rushing into my shoes the water went swish swish swish. The walls were slimy like a toad. There was crayfish in the water there was little and big Ones. I kept bumping my head on the roof of the cave luckily I was wearing a helmet. I crouched down most of the time. When we got to the end we turned of all of our touchs then we saw lots of glow worms they looked like tiny lanterns glowing at night. I didn't want to go down the tight skinny small space. But the cave was calling to me " go do it go do it". We went back out I was scared stiff. The rest of the group went in I just stood there doing nothing.
 When we went to see the wetas the where so big. When the people that went in the tight space and went in with no adults came out I felt a bit anoyed with myself. I said to myself "I should have done it". I stood there with hands in my pockets and scuffed dirt with my shoes and nearly cried but at least I was out of that creepy, spooky, tight, slimy, skinny, dirty, Forrest monster.
