Y: (Breathing heavily)
P: Yang Chen, You are totally out of breath. What's wrong? Are you running away from the police?
Y: Hey! NOT funny! 警察才不会追我呢。我是在练长跑。一千五百米。
P: So you are training for the 1500m. You want to be the fastest in the world?
Y: No. I just want to be faster than you.
P: That's not so easy. You know I'm very good at distance events.
Y 你擅长distance events，那我们要比试比试才知道谁更快。
P: Well, speed isn't the only important thing to win a distance race, Yang Chen.
Y: Yeah yeah, I know - 长跑除了speed速度，还要有patience, 耐心。
P: Well, patience is good, and so is endurance.
P: In the Olympics, distance events are among the most difficult because they involve speed, endurance, patience, and tactics.
P: By tactics, I mean planning ahead how to make your moves.
Some of the world's greatest distance runners do not take the lead until the very end of the race.
Y: 好像最后得冠军的都不是一开始跑在最前面的人，而是到了最后才take the lead 。
P: Right. And they have to maintain the lead until they make a final kick. It's the runner's sprint in the end of the race.
P: Right. So, Yang Chen, have you been working on YOUR kick? OW!
Y: You mean, THAT kind of kick?
P: Ouch, that hurts.
