Note: Check your volume, yelling.
This is a video of young Talaya Crawford losing her shoe at the beginning of a foot race, having to stop to put it back on, then catching up with and smoking the competition. Just imagine if she hadn’t lost a shoe — she probably would have lapped those other kids. I know she definitely would have lapped me, because in the classic fable of the Tortoise and the Hare, I was the drunk squirrel that Aesop chose to edit out of the story. A shame too, because I’m sure there’s a valuable lesson for kids to learn from puking at both the start AND finish lines of a race.
