    When I was in grade 5, my teacher used to start P.E. by shooting a basketball from halfcourt. We had to run laps until he made a basket. He was a decent shot, but from that distance we still usually worked up a good sweat before we were allowed to stop.

    On two occasions he made a basket on the first shot, however! No laps for us that day!

    And thus ends my retrospective on laps and lap-running.

    This was my third-grade PE teacher who made us run laps around the soccer field. A pretty good reason to do grammar homework instead during that time.

    Remember that rope climb at Chamisa? That was my favorite. Laps were cool, too, because they gave you trinkets for running after some number of miles

    SPeterson: Yeah! You remember what it was like– running was fun.

    Nicole: Sorry about the monitor! Laughing is dangerous… ha ha!

    After the mention of the coach’s mustache in the comic before this, I keep hearing him speak with a Russian accent… No clue why!!
