Run, Jump, and Throw
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Alex likes to run. He runs to dinner. He runs to play. He runs away from girls. He runs down the hall. He runs after his dog, Spike.
 
2     Jade loves to jump. She jumps over puddles. She jumps down stairs. She jumps rope. She jumps over the cracks and never breaks her mother's back.
 
3     Luis likes to throw things. He can throw balls. He can throw Frisbees. He can throw sticks. Sometimes he will throw a fit, but that's not the same thing.
 
4     When Alex, Jade, and Luis grow up, they may be on an Olympic team! Did you know that running, jumping, and throwing contests are a part of the Summer Games? We call them track and field events.
 
5     There are eight running races. The shortest race can be run in about ten seconds. The longest race takes two or more hours!

Which would you rather run? _________________
