ENGLISH VERSION  One day, I was in the Turkey Trot Race. I ran the race with my dad and my brother, and it was the 22nd of November 2006. It was in Downtown Davis, aside the Farmer's Market. We did the Turkey Trot because we wanted to have fun, and we ran a lot! We left the house at 7:30 in the morning to walk to the Turkey Trot. We got to the Turkey Trot at 8:05. Before we started, we did some stretches. We reached up, we reached down, and to reach side to side, and to do five times. And then, we started running. I had a lot of fun, because it was my first race. We ran past the train tracks, and we ran in Downtown Davis. We also ran past my house on B Street! My mom was outside the house to give some waters to us, and to give milk to my brother. We ran past Rainbow City, and past some girls selling Gatorade. Later, we came to the finish line. And somebody with a microphone said my name! My mom was there, and then we went to the moonbouces. It was very fun. And I was the youngest person in the race! And then, we went to have breakfast at Ciocolat. It was a very fun day.

Era en Downtown Davis, al lado del Farmer's Market. ¡Hacemos la carrera del "Turkey Trot" porque queremos tener divertido! ¡Corremos mucho! Salimos de la casa en 7:30 en la mañana para caminar al "Turkey Trot". Nosotros llegamos al "Turkey Trot" en 8:05. Antes que empezamos, hacemos algunas flexiones. Decimos que alcanzamos arriba, y que alcanzamos abajo, y que alcanzamos a la izquierda, y a la derecha, y que hacemos como...cinco veces. Y después, empezamos a correr. Yo me divertí mucho, porque era mi primera carrera. Corremos al lado de los pistas del tren y corremos dentro del Downtown Davis! También corremos delante de mi casa en "B Street". Mi mama era afuera de la casa para dar algunas botellas de agua a nosotros, y para dar leche a mi hermano. Corremos al lado del "Rainbow City", y al lado de algunas niñas quienes vendaban Gatorade. Después, venimos a la línea de llegada. ¡Y una persona con un micrófono dice mi nombre! Mi mama esta allí, y luego vamos a las casas de saltar. Era muy divertido. ¡Y yo era el mas pequeño de todos en el "Turkey Trot"! Y después vayamos a desayunar en Ciocolat. Era un día muy divertido.
