“I just can’t stop thinking about my daughters track meet yesterday,” Bud wrote alongside the video. “She just doesn’t have a clue how much she just motivated me. This is the definition of not giving [up], heart and grit. She let it all hang out even when she was hit with adversity.” — Terence “Bud” Crawford 
Talaya’s running coach, Shunta Paul, told Omaha.com that the youngster was “embarrassed” by the blunder, and that she has promised to make sure her shoelaces are tightly tied before the beginning of every future race.
But Paul said it’s really Talaya who has taught people all around the world an important lesson: “Never give up!” 
“Me and my wife watched ithis three times in a row, both in awe that she didn’t just get upset and quit. I think most kids wouldn’t pouted, cried. Not only does stick with it and finish, but she comes back to somehow dominate. We should all have her grit.”
