When I got there, we did what we usually did. At first. We did our exercises, and our stretches, as usual. Then, when I expected to go into the forest, or for the coach to take his stopwatch out, he said, "So, are there any games you wanted to play?" Everyone started talking, and I thought capture the flag would be awesome. Finally, everyone decided on sardines. We played it in the whole north fields of Maine South, not only the football field. We all had a good time, especially with such a big group.
I was surprised when some people didn't know what sardines was. I remembered, because all the kids on my block used to play sardines when it got dark out. It was more fun when it was dark. We had three yards in a row to play on; some had swing sets, some had garages, and we played in the front yards too. There were plenty of places to hide, and we always had a really great time. That's always a really fun game to play with a big group in a big area.
Even though cross country is over, we plan to keep running in the mornings until cross country starts at school. That way, everything we've built up during the camp won't go to waste. I'm happy that I've improved my mile time (if only by three seconds), and I want to keep it up. I hope that my improvement shows during the season!
