The football game Friday was a good game. I am a statistician for Fort Le Boeuf so I got a very first hand experience of the game. We played the Iroquois Braves, who were undefeated, and our team won the game to stay undefeated. Every player played well and did their job and it was shown by the win. I didn’t go to the dance this week because the next day I had to run a cross-country meet and trying to stay up late doesn’t work very well when dealing with running. I have learned this lesson first hand a couple times.
One time I had to do a lot of homework and of course I waited until the last minute to do it. So I was up until about 2: 00 in the morning. When I got up the next morning it is easy to say that I was a little worn out and tired. I made it through the day ok, a little out of it but not too bad. When it came to running after school, though, I felt like I was running very slowly. My legs didn’t seem to work anymore.
I did make it through practice, but it was the worst practice that I had experience up to that point. Anyway, getting a good night sleep is important. After waking up on Saturday it was off to Penn State Behrend to run at a Cross Country invitational. We got there and walked around campus, which I thought was a overall nice place. The race that we ran was about 3. 1 miles long and it felt every bit that long.
I started the race out a little too fast and it went down hill from there. The whole race I was in 2 nd place (Bruce was in 1 st), but there was always this one kid right behind me. I tried to run faster but did not have enough energy and my legs just wouldn’t do it. About 100 meters from the finish line the kid passed me and I couldn’t catch him. I guess I was ok with taking 3 rd, but 2 nd would have been better.
Video games are bad for Children Stop the debate as to whether children who love playing video games should be encouraged to continue or should they be stopped. Several people think children need to play video games because they make them active, but still, numerous other people also believe video games are not good for children. Despite the fact that other people think video games are healthy for ...
After the race it was kind of nice to go home and relax a little. The relaxing didn’t last forever though. I have decided to try archery hunting this year and it seemed like a good time to learn how to properly shoot a bow. My dad’s good friend came over and helped me sight it in and taught me a couple tricks that he uses.
By the time the end of the day came around I could shoot the arrows pretty much wherever I wanted to. This took a while and by the time I got done it was time to turn in to go to sleep.
