I am not an athlete.
I am a mathlete!
But, I am not usually picked for a team in physical education first.
I am tall, and very skinny.
I cannot do a pull-up.
I can do eleven push-ups!
My mom told me that when I was little, I was on a baseball team.
I cried when we had to run laps.
Actually, I was so slow in running laps, that when I was going out to the fence, the others were coming back already.
One time I tried to turn around and finish running at the same time as them.
My mom made me turn back and do it right.
I was very unhappy.
The best part of t-ball was drawing pictures in the infield dirt.
I didn’t play after that.
I have liked running a bit more each year.
Sometimes, when I’m bored at my sister’s softball practices and games, I run around the whole field.
This past summer I tried tennis – I liked it too.
I think I might like to go out for cross-country.
I think that running more often could be fun.
This year, I would become a real athlete.
