Today, I’m going to tell you guys a story. This story, will be the story of how I got started running track. I hope you like it!
One day, my cousins came over. The girls were all playing inside, but us guys like to play outside. We were playing a game of soccer. I thought it was going pretty well. Cloud and I were on the same team against Chip.
I kicked the ball, but Chip blocked it.He had won the game.
“You cost us the game!” Cloud yelled. “It’s because you’re so little.”
I was hurt. “I thought we were having fun,” I whimpered.
“It would be more fun if we were actually winning,” Cloud replied.
“Well, fine! You two play by yourself!” I screamed, while running inside. When I glanced back at them, they were already having fun playing another round.
My mother was waiting at the door. “Is everything alright?” she asked.
“No!” I announced. “They don’t want to play with me because I’m not good at soccer.”
“Well, why don’t you try something else? Like football, or basketball?” Mother asked.
“We’ve already tried those! Nothing works!” I shouted.
“What about track?” Mother suggested.
“I don’t think they would play that with me,” I sighed.
“Well,” Mother smiled. “They are in my house aren’t they? And if they’re in my house, they have to play by my rules.”
With that, Mother marched outside and explained what we were going to do.
We all readied ourselves for the race to begin.
I started off not doing too well. It looked like Cloud would win.
However, by the end, I took the lead! I won the race!
“That was some good running, Rudy,” Chip complimented.
“Thanks!” I replied, panting. “That was a lot of fun.”
“So, what did we think of track?” Mother asked.
“I loved it!” I replied. “Can I sign up for trackkk now?”
“We’ll see,” Mother laughed.
