Run Life like YoGo!

Chaiky Berger

“YoGo go go go go! YoGo go go go go! Go go go!” Junior fans cheered as YoGo raced Gayil and Avi. The backyard resembled a racetrack and the finish line’s flags were waving in the wind on this beautiful summer morning.

“Avi?” YoGo whispered in a strawberry-flavored voice. “I’m a high-function food and you sure were smart enough to know I’d win the race and earn some junk for my own topping,” Yogo said, still running quickly. “Actually, I think we should practice another couple of rounds so that you and Gayil can improve your running skills.”

“Sure thing!” Avi was game. But he wondered if he’d ever be able to beat YoGo. “Can we run a couple of trial races and then when I feel fit enough we’ll run the real race and earn our prizes?” Competition in the summer wasn’t really about competition, but about fun.

Gayil was excited. She zipped over to Beryl. “YoGo, Avi and I will race the course after a couple of trial games. You can cheer us on.”
