It was a fine summer day, the sun was out, birds were singing. Layla was having a busy day. She had been practicing for a track race for almost 2 months now and shes determined to be first place.
Layla woke up early in the morning each and everyday to go for practice. Her friends Stella and Lilly would cheer her on. Layla was full of confidence and pushed herself even harder.
One day, Layla heard bad news. James, her competitor, had been breaking his timed records and people think that he may be the win first place. Everyone started rooting for him and this got Layla furious! She had to come up with a way to fix this.
From that day on she started working extra hard. She ran longer than she was possibly able to and kept pushing herself. She needed to get that first place!
During the day of the race, Layla made sure she put in all her effort. She passed many of the players and now was in 2nd place behind James.
By the end of the race Layla ended up in 2nd place. However instead of being furious she was rather happy for all the determination she had in herself. Layle is happy that she had fun and at least got to be a part of this race.
