Once around the track

Once upon a time, there was a young athlete named Liam who dreamed of running in the big track meets. He practiced every day, running faster and faster until he finally got his chance to compete. As he stepped onto the track for his first race, his heart was pounding in his chest.

The starter pistol fired, and Liam took off, his legs moving as fast as they could. He ran and ran, pushing himself harder than he ever had before. But as he approached the finish line, he realized he had only completed part of the race – he still needed to go all the way around the track to finish.

Feeling determined, Liam began his second lap. He ran with all his might, his feet pounding against the ground as he made his way around the oval track. Finally, after what felt like an eternity, he crossed the finish line.

From that moment on, Liam knew that completing a full lap around the track was just as important as making it to the finish line. So, every time he competed, he pushed himself to go that extra distance. And that’s how the answer to the crossword clue “Once around the track” became “LAP” – because running a full lap is an essential part of any race.
