She's like the wind.

See the tall, gangly girl in the shirt with an Ethiopian flag? The girl with the adorable headband and a huge smile? She girl with perfect posture, shoulders back, head up, swinging arms, long stride that makes it look so easy as she passes every other runner on the track?

That's my daughter. I am proud. I have never seen a child run like this, so effortlessly fast.

She's not even TRYING! That girl's just playing around, and she's so fast it's startling! Good grief!

That is slightly hilarious. She's kind of like, 'What the hell are we doing here?' Everyone she is passing is all out of breath and struggling. She doesn't even get it and she's kicking ass. I love this.
