Laurel runs a 13 minute mile

 Laurel enjoyed the kids race during Swiss Days and was eager to run in Payson's Scottish Festival "sprint".  But we discovered upon arrival that there weren't different age brackets and distances: there was only one kids race, and it was a solid mile.  A mile! For a 4 and a half year old!  Luke went with her, and he said that she began to slow down at one section and then said out loud "I can't slow down; I ate all those pancakes for breakfast!"  Backstory: that morning she was just eating the fruit off the pancakes, and Luke told her if she wanted energy for her race, she needed to eat the actual pancake.  It's good to know she's so self-motivated.  And her finish time really was 13:01:00.  I'm hopeful we've discovered her talent that will pay for college!

Wow! What an accomplishment at an early age. She's learning all about the carb-loading early too! Love you all!

Hooray for self motivated Laurel. Didn't know little ones even paid attention to carb loading. What a joy. Love Opa
