Near Death Experience

     Dear fellow friends! This week I'll be blogging about why its important to watch out for traffic. In my first paragraph I'll be explaing why traffic safety is important. In my second paragraph I'll explain why I'm even writing this blog this week.
     Traffic safety is important because you never know how well someone can drive. If they're a good driver than you're fine. If they're a bad driver then you should definetly watch out. So many thing could happen if you don't watch out for traffic. You could die, get hit by a car, you could become paralyzed and so many other dangerous life threating things. Amd don't forget when you cross the road, use a crosswalk because if you you do get hit and survive you can sue. Just remember to watch out for traffic.
     I'm writing this blog today because the other day my two friends Sara and Lauren almot got hit by a truck. We were walking on the sidewalk about to get to the other side of the crosswalk. We started to go across and all of a sudden a truck honks at us for no reason. Then we realize that we're in its way and it was turing right where we were. Lauren and I screamed so loud we thought we were going to die. Sara just jumped back. That is why it is important to watch out for traffic.
     I hope you enjoyed my blog today. I hope everyone after this blog will definetly take traffic into consideration. Check out my blog next week.

New Zealand

     Dear fellow friends. This week I'll be talking about New Zealand. My dad was born in New Zealand and moved to America. In my first paragraph I'll be blogging about where New Zealand is and etc. In my second paragraph I'll be blogging about my family from New Zealand.
     New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It's continent is Oceania. It has 2 main islands. The capital of New Zealand is Wellington. New Zealand is just southeast of Australia. The currency of New Zealand is New Zealand Dollars. The offical language of New Zealand is Maori and they even have New Zealand Sign Language!
     All of my family on my dad's side live in New Zealand. My dad was born in New Zealand. He is from Auckland. Even some of my cousins live in Australia! Everyone says my dad has an accent. Which he does but I'm so used to it I don't here it anymore. In fact just a week ago my cousin Clare and her boyfriend Matt visited us for a week. I was so happy to see her. I haven't seen her in almost 7 years. I've been to New Zealand multiple times and I love it so much. I reccomend anyone and everyone to visit New Zealand.
     Well I hope all of you guys enjoyed this blog this week!! Don't forget to check back next week.

PR's in Track

     Dear fellow friends! This week I'll be blogging about pr's or also known as personal records. With pr's you can decrease your time over the season. You can only decrease your time if you run faster. In my first paragraph I'll be explaining why pr's are so great. In my second paragraph I'll be talking about my pr's.
     Pr's are awesome to get. Pr's are so awesome to get because it means you're getting better and faster. In the beginning of the season your times are usually pretty slow because you haven't run in a while or your body's not use to exercising. The coaches usually pick the people who have gotten way faster over the season or people who were already fast for championships and states. Pr's usually aren't beat by that much. They're usually only better from anywhere from 0-4 seconds.
     I have gotten so many pr's in track. In my 4x800 relay teams I've been beating my pr's by 2 seconds every time I run. In the beginning of the season my best time was 2:42. By the end of the season my time was 2:34. In my 4x400 I beat my record by .3 seconds by the end of the season. Even when you run something for the first time it's still considered beating your pr. This one time in cross country my pr was 426 seconds. Everyone was so amazed that I ran around 7 minutes faster by the end of the season. Those are all of my pr's that I got after already running that race before.
     That's all for today. I hope you enjoyed my blog and that you check in next week!!
