Let’s listen to today’s story.
Mimiko: Coach, why did we meet outside the junior high school gates today?
Coach: Because the race will begin and end at the field right here. By the way, we won't run today.
Mimiko: Huh? Are you sure?
Coach: Taday, we will walk the course. This way, we can learn the most effective way to run it.
Mr. Aoki: It's practice for winning.
Mimiko: I thought running fast was the key to winning.
Mr. Aoki: Coach, please get started.
Coach: Let's walk toward the halfway point, Sakurayama park. First, when we get out of the school, we will turn left at the intersection. Then, we will walk along the slope toward the running course by Sakurayama River. Let's go.
