1 "Remind me again how long the race is," Todd said, leaning over and out of breath.
2 Dad laughed, putting his arm on Todd's back. "Twenty-six miles, three hundred eighty-five yards. Do you think you're ready?"
3 "I hope so. We've been practicing all year. I'm excited about running in it," Todd said as they walked into the house.
4 "Well, the runners have returned," Mom said. "How did it go today?"
5 "It went well. Todd says he's ready," said Dad.
6 "Hi, Todd. Hi, Dad," said Brandon. "You guys look tired."
7 "We just finished our practice marathon, Brandon," said Dad.
8 "Oh, yeah, I remember. The race is pretty soon, huh?"
9 "On Monday," said Todd.
