# Let's have an adventure, hooray

0:00:050:00:10

# Who could we be today?

0:00:100:00:13

# What could we do?

0:00:130:00:15

# I'd like to drive a racing car

0:00:150:00:18

# Or fly to the moon

0:00:180:00:20

# I could be a firefighter

0:00:200:00:22

# A farmer or a vet

0:00:220:00:25

# A knight in shining armour

0:00:250:00:27

# Or I could be a chef

0:00:270:00:29

# Let's play, let's play

0:00:290:00:34

# Let's have an adventure today

0:00:340:00:38

# Let's play! #

0:00:380:00:40

-Right, then.

-OK.

0:00:430:00:44

Rebecca is getting ready to put the next object on top of the tower.

0:00:440:00:50

I've got to choose carefully, though,

0:00:500:00:52

-anything too big will bring it all crashing down.

-What's it going to be?

0:00:520:00:57

Rebecca has chosen the duck! The duck is going on top next!

0:00:570:01:01

-It's going to be the duck next!

-Sid?

0:01:010:01:04

-YES...I mean, yes.

-Do you mind? I'm trying to concentrate.

0:01:040:01:07

OK. Sorry.

0:01:070:01:09

OK.

0:01:090:01:11

Let's put this duck on top.

0:01:110:01:14

Here we go!

0:01:140:01:15

-Oh!

-Ohh!

0:01:200:01:21

Oh, noooooooooo!

0:01:210:01:24

It was the tallest tower ever seen in the whole world,

0:01:240:01:27

but now it has come crashing down!

0:01:270:01:30

-Rebecca must be so...

-Sid. Sid.

0:01:300:01:34

It's all right, it's only a tower.

0:01:340:01:37

-Yeah, that's true.

-OK, I'll start again.

0:01:370:01:40

-All right, I'll give you a hand.

-CHIRPING

0:01:400:01:43

Hold on, Sid. It's time!

0:01:430:01:45

Great!

0:01:450:01:48

-It's time to play!

-Whose turn is it today?

0:01:500:01:54

-Let it be me!

-Let it be me!

0:01:540:01:57

-Me!

-Me!

0:01:570:01:58

Let it be me! Let it be... me!

0:01:580:02:03

Let it be me!

0:02:030:02:05

Let it be me!

0:02:050:02:06

# Let it be me! Let it be me!

0:02:060:02:10

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me. #

0:02:100:02:14

-Let...

-Let...

-Let..

0:02:140:02:16

Let it be me!

0:02:160:02:18

# Let it be me! Let it be me!

0:02:180:02:21

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me. #

0:02:210:02:25

-Could it be me?

-Could it be me?

0:02:250:02:29

It's me!

0:02:290:02:31

# Yes, it's me! Yes, it's me!

0:02:310:02:34

# I'm really, really, really, really happy! #

0:02:340:02:38

It's me!

0:02:380:02:40

Look, there's the dressing-up room!

0:02:400:02:43

Let's play!

0:02:430:02:45

So what are we going to play?

0:02:450:02:48

Let's find out.

0:02:480:02:50

So a princess dress, a top hat and skis?!

0:02:540:02:58

I don't think so. Let's try again.

0:02:580:03:01

Aha! This is more like it!

0:03:050:03:08

A tracksuit and a pair of pumps.

0:03:080:03:11

So what do you think we're playing today?

0:03:110:03:13

Well, I'm guessing something sporty.

0:03:130:03:16

But what kind of sport?

0:03:160:03:18

Let's find out.

0:03:180:03:20

Today, Rebecca, you're going to be a runner,

0:03:220:03:25

a runner in a long-distance race.

0:03:250:03:27

All runners wear special shoes.

0:03:270:03:30

Short-distance sprinters wear spiked-soled shoes

0:03:300:03:33

to help them grip the running track.

0:03:330:03:36

And long-distance runners wear racing flats.

0:03:360:03:39

Runners drink water when running

0:03:390:03:42

a long-distance race such as a marathon.

0:03:420:03:45

They have to drink small amounts often.

0:03:450:03:48

SHE GLUGS

0:03:480:03:49

Runners work with specially trained people

0:03:510:03:54

called physiotherapists or physios for short.

0:03:540:03:57

They help them look after their bodies especially their muscles.

0:03:570:04:04

OK, so that's what we need to remember.

0:04:040:04:07

Do we need anything else?

0:04:070:04:10

Ohh!

0:04:100:04:12

It's got a number on it!

0:04:120:04:14

A number 1!

0:04:140:04:17

Well, I don't know what it's for but I guess it'll come in handy.

0:04:170:04:21

OK, we've got everybody we need.

0:04:210:04:24

On your marks. Get set. Let's go.

0:04:240:04:27

Let's play!

0:04:270:04:30

Hey, Sid, check me out.

0:04:300:04:31

-Can you guess what we're playing today?

-Erm...

0:04:310:04:34

You're going to be...a PE teacher!

0:04:340:04:36

She looks just like my old PE teacher.

0:04:360:04:39

-No! We're playing runners.

-Oh, runners! Yes!

0:04:390:04:42

You'll be excellent at that, you're always running around.

0:04:420:04:45

-Well, I'd better hurry off.

-Have fun.

-See you.

-Bye.

0:04:450:04:48

Let's play!

0:04:480:04:50

Come on, let's play runners!

0:04:520:04:55

Whoo!

0:04:550:04:58

SHE CHUCKLES

0:04:580:05:00

Let's play!

0:05:000:05:02

All right, here we are, then.

0:05:030:05:06

Looks like something important's happening.

0:05:060:05:09

KLAXON BLARES

0:05:090:05:10

-Whoa! I'm sorry! Did I startle you?

-HE LAUGHS

0:05:100:05:15

It's just that I'm so excited that I, Trey, personal trainer,

0:05:150:05:19

get to start the marathon!

0:05:190:05:21

On your marks. Get set.

0:05:210:05:23

KLAXON BLARES

0:05:230:05:24

Whoo-hoo! Yeah!

0:05:240:05:25

-Oh, that is loud!

-I know. Isn't it great?

0:05:250:05:29

KLAXON BLARES

0:05:290:05:30

Yes. Yes, it's lovely.

0:05:300:05:33

-Let me hear you say yeah!

-Er...yeah.

0:05:330:05:35

Trey can't hear you!

0:05:350:05:37

-Let me hear you say, "Whoa, yeah!"

-Whoa, yeah!

0:05:370:05:41

-Now with a great big smile on your face, "Whoa, yeah!"

-Whoa, yeah!

0:05:410:05:45

You're ready, girl. That's much better.

0:05:450:05:48

-Are you ready to run the marathon?

-Yeah!

0:05:480:05:51

SHE LAUGHS

0:05:510:05:52

Sorry, what is the marathon?

0:05:520:05:54

The MegaWow Marathon!

0:05:540:05:55

It's happening today. It's only the athletic event of the season.

0:05:550:06:00

-So, what do you have to do, then?

-Well, 26 miles.

0:06:000:06:04

26 miles?!

0:06:040:06:05

That's not running, that's a bus journey.

0:06:050:06:08

Yep, it's a long way, all right. A long, long, long, long way!

0:06:080:06:12

-It certainly is!

-What's your name, kid?

0:06:120:06:15

-Rebecca.

-Rebecca, my friend,

0:06:150:06:17

you're going to run his marathon because you can do it!

0:06:170:06:20

-You can do it for the crowds of cheering people.

-Oh!

0:06:200:06:24

-You can do it for Rex Barker, the famous race commentator.

-Oh, yes!

0:06:240:06:28

You can do it for the millions watching on television.

0:06:280:06:31

-Watching me?! Yes!

-Yes!

0:06:310:06:34

Let me hear you say yeah!

0:06:340:06:37

-BOTH:

-Yeah!

0:06:370:06:39

-All right!

-Bring it on!

0:06:390:06:41

Bring it on! Oh, yeah!

0:06:410:06:42

-OK, that's enough yeah!

-SHE PANTS

0:06:420:06:46

-Let's go train.

-Yeah!

0:06:460:06:48

I mean, yes, of course.

0:06:480:06:51

Let's play!

0:06:510:06:53

OK, Rebecca, when you go running,

0:06:530:06:55

the first thing you have to do is warm up. Starting with the neck.

0:06:550:06:59

Side to side.

0:06:590:07:01

Now shake out those arms.

0:07:010:07:03

Now legs.

0:07:030:07:06

Now stretch out your leg like this.

0:07:070:07:11

And the other one.

0:07:110:07:13

Oh! I fell over!

0:07:130:07:16

-Rebecca, focus!

-Sorry. Yeah.

0:07:160:07:18

OK. Another thing you have do, Rebecca,

0:07:180:07:21

when you run a marathon is believe in yourself.

0:07:210:07:24

-Believe in myself?

-Yeah. Say, "I can do it!"

0:07:240:07:28

-You can do it!

-No!

0:07:280:07:30

"I...can...do...it!"

0:07:300:07:31

-You can do it!

-No, no, no!

0:07:310:07:35

You've got to say to yourself, "I can do it!"

0:07:350:07:37

Oh, right. Sorry. I can do it!

0:07:370:07:40

-Again.

-I can do it!

0:07:400:07:43

-Louder!

-I can do it!

0:07:430:07:45

Oh, yes, you can!

0:07:450:07:47

Whoo! Yeah!

0:07:470:07:49

I love all this whooping and hollering!

0:07:490:07:52

Now I've got to go and start the marathon.

0:07:520:07:54

OK. Which way do I go?

0:07:540:07:57

Oh, I need say a few more yeahs!

0:07:570:08:00

No, you're wearing the wrong shoes, go and change them.

0:08:000:08:04

Wearing the wrong shoes?!

0:08:040:08:06

Oh, no! I need to find the right shoes and fast!

0:08:060:08:10

Let's play!

0:08:110:08:13

DOORBELL RINGS

0:08:130:08:15

Ah, running shoes!

0:08:150:08:16

Oh, wow! There are so many to choose from!

0:08:160:08:20

But which ones are for me? It could be any of these.

0:08:200:08:23

Oh, hold on! I remember! Do you?

0:08:230:08:27

That's it! Sprinters wear spiked-soled shoes

0:08:270:08:31

and long-distance runners wear racing flats!

0:08:310:08:35

Trey said we're running 26 miles. That's a long distance.

0:08:350:08:40

So we're going to need racing flats.

0:08:400:08:43

Excuse me, anyone here? Hello!

0:08:430:08:46

-What's up?

-Oh, yes. Can I get a pair of racing flats, please?

0:08:460:08:51

-OK.

-Great!

0:08:510:08:53

-One pair of racing flats?

-Yep.

0:08:530:08:56

These look like the ones.

0:08:560:08:58

Ohh! Ah!

0:09:020:09:05

-Great! I'll take these. Thanks.

-Are you running a marathon?

0:09:070:09:11

-All 26 miles!

-26.2. Respect, lady.

0:09:110:09:15

Oh, yes. Thanks very much.

0:09:150:09:18

SHE LAUGHS Great!

0:09:180:09:20

-See you. Bye!

-Sweet!

0:09:200:09:22

Let's play!

0:09:220:09:25

Right, I just need on get to the start line before...

0:09:250:09:28

KLAXON BLARES

0:09:280:09:30

Oh, no! The klaxon! The race has started and I'm not there.

0:09:300:09:34

We'd better hurry. Come on.

0:09:340:09:36

Oh, no! Where is everyone?

0:09:410:09:43

-Oh, I'm late!

-Looks like we've got a latecomer.

0:09:430:09:47

Looks like she wants to join in the marathon.

0:09:470:09:50

But I can't see her number.

0:09:500:09:52

Rebecca, you missed the start of the marathon!

0:09:520:09:56

-Everyone else has gone!

-I know!

0:09:560:09:58

-Right. OK. Start me off, please.

-OK. Ready. And...

0:09:580:10:01

Wait a minute!

0:10:010:10:03

What? Oh, of course. Yeah!

0:10:030:10:06

-No! Where's your official marathon bib?

-My what?

0:10:060:10:10

-A bib? What's that?

-You know, like a vest with a number on it.

0:10:100:10:13

Oh, no! I didn't know I needed one of those.

0:10:130:10:16

You can't run without it.

0:10:160:10:18

You need a number so everyone knows who you are.

0:10:180:10:21

Oh, no! I really wanted to run the marathon as well.

0:10:210:10:24

I don't have... I do have a bib!

0:10:240:10:28

That's what this is for.

0:10:280:10:32

Ah! Number 1, Rebecca. A newcomer to the world of running

0:10:320:10:36

and a late starter in the MegaWow Marathon.

0:10:360:10:40

Looks like she's ready now, though.

0:10:400:10:42

All right, now remember take it one mile at a time.

0:10:420:10:46

-Let me have another one of those yeahs!

-Yeah!

0:10:460:10:49

-That's it! Give me an "oh, yeah"!

-Oh, yeah!

0:10:490:10:51

-Give me another...

-I should start the race.

0:10:510:10:54

Of course. Ready. And... KLAXON BLARES

0:10:540:10:58

-Go!

-Whoo-hoo! Here I go!

0:10:580:11:01

Here comes our Number 1, Rebecca.

0:11:010:11:03

And she's loving every minute of it.

0:11:030:11:05

She didn't get off to a good start,

0:11:050:11:08

but it's too soon to rule her out of the competition. A teddy!

0:11:080:11:12

Fantastic! We like it when people dress up in funny clothes

0:11:120:11:16

to run the Mega-Wow Marathon.

0:11:160:11:18

Oh, look! An 'edgehog!

0:11:180:11:21

-Go on, Spikey, keep going!

-HE LAUGHS

0:11:210:11:25

Rebecca's making excellent progress.

0:11:250:11:27

She's caught up with the back markers

0:11:270:11:29

and she's getting ahead. Go, Rebecca!

0:11:290:11:32

And she's looking good as she passes the Palace.

0:11:320:11:35

This is a royally fine performance from Rebecca.

0:11:350:11:38

Past the table with the water. No, she's not stopping!

0:11:380:11:42

Oh, no! It looks like it's not going quite so well.

0:11:420:11:45

It looks like Rebecca might be in trouble.

0:11:450:11:48

She's slowing down!

0:11:480:11:50

Oh! I really don't feel very good.

0:11:500:11:53

This marathon running is really hard work.

0:11:530:11:58

I need a drink! But I really don't want to stop!

0:11:580:12:02

Shall I stop?

0:12:020:12:05

Or should I carry on?

0:12:050:12:07

Oh, hold on.

0:12:070:12:10

I remember, do you? That's it!

0:12:100:12:13

Runners drink water when running a long-distance race.

0:12:130:12:17

We need some water and fast!

0:12:170:12:21

Oh! Look! There's a water stop.

0:12:210:12:24

I needed that! I feel much better.

0:12:340:12:37

I'll make sure I have a little sip of water at every stop from now on.

0:12:370:12:41

But for now, let's keep going.

0:12:410:12:45

And Rebecca is back on track now

0:12:480:12:50

to finish the marathon in a really good time.

0:12:500:12:52

She may even beat the record

0:12:520:12:54

for the fastest first-time runner. Go, Number 1!

0:12:540:12:58

She's really making up some time.

0:12:580:13:01

She's passing the hedgehog again! Go, Spikey!

0:13:010:13:05

And look at that. Good girl.

0:13:070:13:09

She's taking on a bit more water.

0:13:090:13:11

Little and often, that's the way.

0:13:110:13:13

A few more miles to go and she's going to finish really well.

0:13:130:13:18

Oh, but what's happened?

0:13:180:13:21

That looks painful. Is it her leg?

0:13:210:13:25

Oh, no!

0:13:250:13:27

Poor Rebecca. Will this be her first and last Mega Wow marathon?

0:13:270:13:32

Oh, my leg. It hurts.

0:13:340:13:37

I don't think I'm going to be able to run any further

0:13:380:13:42

and I'm not far from the end.

0:13:420:13:43

Oh, no, what am I going to do?

0:13:430:13:46

Hold on. I remember, do you? That's it.

0:13:480:13:51

Athletes work with physiotherapists who help them

0:13:510:13:54

look after their bodies.

0:13:540:13:56

I need to find one of those and maybe they can help me with my leg.

0:13:560:14:00

Hello. Is there a physio here?

0:14:030:14:06

I'm a physio. My name's Phil.

0:14:060:14:08

-What can I do for you, number 1?

-I'm Rebecca.

0:14:080:14:11

-Right, what can I do for you, Rebecca?

-My leg.

0:14:110:14:14

I was running along and it really started to hurt.

0:14:140:14:17

-Where exactly does it hurt?

-Just here.

-Right, OK.

0:14:170:14:21

We get a lot of this with marathon runners.

0:14:210:14:23

-Is this your first time?

-Yes.

0:14:230:14:25

-It is a gastrocnemius.

-Gastro what?

-Your gastrocnemius.

0:14:250:14:29

-Your calf muscle. You've got cramp.

-Oh.

0:14:290:14:32

Does that feel any better?

0:14:340:14:36

Oh, yes, it's starting to feel much better.

0:14:360:14:39

Right, so you're going to be OK?

0:14:390:14:42

I think so.

0:14:420:14:44

-I'll tell you what.

-What?

0:14:440:14:47

I'm going to run with you.

0:14:470:14:49

Come on, Rebecca, number 1, let's finish together.

0:14:490:14:52

OK, let's do it.

0:14:520:14:54

Well, look at this. She's back. Number 1.

0:14:570:15:02

Rebecca, she's back and she's running.

0:15:020:15:05

That's it, number 1, Rebecca.

0:15:050:15:08

Looking good.

0:15:080:15:09

She's a real trier. She won't give up.

0:15:090:15:12

She's powering on through.

0:15:120:15:14

What a heroic effort from this first-timer.

0:15:140:15:18

She's really showing the Mega Wow spirit.

0:15:180:15:22

Go, Rebecca.

0:15:220:15:24

Got to keep going.

0:15:260:15:29

Come on, Rebecca. Keep on going. You can do it.

0:15:300:15:35

It's her first Mega Wow marathon,

0:15:350:15:37

but she's really got the support.

0:15:370:15:39

The crowd is keeping her going.

0:15:390:15:42

Nearly there.

0:15:460:15:48

That's right, you're nearly there. Come on, keep going.

0:15:480:15:53

And now, we're near the end.

0:15:530:15:55

Rebecca's on the final straight.

0:15:550:15:57

Just the last bit of the race to go, the final 100 metres.

0:15:570:16:00

She's a real runner, is Rebecca.

0:16:000:16:03

-A true sporting hero.

-You can do it.

0:16:030:16:07

I'll see you at the finish line.

0:16:070:16:09

-She can do it.

-Yes, that's it.

0:16:090:16:13

Go on, girl. Go on, Rebecca.

0:16:130:16:16

Come on, number 1, Rebecca. That's it.

0:16:160:16:19

Not much further to go.

0:16:190:16:21

She's done it!

0:16:260:16:29

-Rebecca!

-You've done it. Well done. She's done it.

0:16:290:16:33

She's a first-time marathon runner but she's finished the race

0:16:330:16:37

and she's broken the record.

0:16:370:16:40

I'm filling up.

0:16:400:16:42

You did it, you beat the record for the fastest first-timer

0:16:420:16:46

in the Mega Wow marathon.

0:16:460:16:48

-Look, take that.

-Oh, wow, that's great.

0:16:480:16:51

Great? That's amazing.

0:16:510:16:53

-Let me hear you say...

-Yeah!

0:16:530:16:56

Attagirl! I got you a medal.

0:16:560:17:00

Oh, thank you.

0:17:000:17:02

It's brilliant being a runner

0:17:020:17:04

but we would never have done it

0:17:040:17:06

without remembering everything we needed to know.

0:17:060:17:11

Runners wear special shoes

0:17:110:17:13

and long-distance runners wear racing flats.

0:17:130:17:17

They need to drink water as they go.

0:17:170:17:19

Small amounts, often.

0:17:190:17:22

And runners work with physios who help them look after their bodies.

0:17:220:17:28

I think it's time we went home. Bye, everyone. Bye.

0:17:340:17:38

Bye, Rebecca. Great running.

0:17:380:17:40

Oh, Rebecca. Welcome back.

0:17:490:17:52

-And you've got a medal.

-Yep, and a stopwatch too.

0:17:520:17:55

-Being a runner was fantastic.

-Sounds cool.

0:17:550:17:59

So, I've got a new game.

0:17:590:18:00

See who can make a tower but who can make it in the fastest time.

0:18:000:18:05

There's no stopping you, is there?

0:18:050:18:07

-OK, you go first and I'll time.

-I'll get everything ready.

0:18:070:18:11

Playing runners was great fun. What do you like to play?

0:18:110:18:15

I love to play racing drivers. I race around like this.

0:18:180:18:24

I like playing wizards and casting spells over my friends.

0:18:240:18:28

Playing detective is fun because you get to solve lots of crimes.

0:18:310:18:36

I look for clues like this.

0:18:360:18:38

It's fun to play. Start playing today.

0:18:430:18:46

See you soon.
