The chapter opens with Roshi putting Kame House in a capsule. After doing so, him, Goku, Krillin and Launch board a hoverboat, which they take to an volcanic island, where they set up Kame House. Launch goes inside to prepare dinner as the men begin training. Their first assignment is to run 100 kilometers. Krillin is the first to go; his time is 10.4 seconds. Goku goes next, and his time is 11 seconds, exactly. However, Goku's shoes are tattered, so he asks if he can change his shoes and run again, which Roshi allows. After getting a change of shoes, he runs again, getting a time of 8.5 seconds. Impressed by the boys' times, Roshi shows them how well he can do; his time is 5.6 seconds. Do to being out of practice, Roshi is a bit parched, so he asks Goku to fetch him a beer. Krillin goes instead, but Launch sneezes, causing her to chase him with a knife.
