Miranda’s dad is going to his very first marathon. But they get there late and Dad sends Miranda back to the car for his lucky water bottle. Before she can find it, the starter’s horn goes off and the runners are off!

Miranda grabs the water bottle and dashes down the course looking for her dad. She runs up hills and down hills, and catches up with runners wearing tutus and vegetable costumes and normal clothes. She asks each one: “Have you seen my dad?” Some of the runners are nice, some ignore her, and some call her a pipsqueak, but none of them has seen her father.

Finally Miranda gets to the finish line, where she finds her father ... and gets a big surprise!
