Run, Little Sugar, Run

By Robin Dearing

Remember a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Mar had signed up for track? I wasn't sure she was going to like it. Well, guess what?

She loves it.

She talks about track all. the. time.

I'm so happy and not just because we spent a bunch of cash getting her signed and suited up for it, but because she has a sport that she enjoys ... for the most part.

Yesterday was her first track meet:

She was excited. My mom and I were excited. Bill wanted her to not get hurt. It's not contact football, it's track. Sheesh.

Her first event was the 100-meter hurdles:

Look at her ponytail fly!

I was so happy to see her clear all the hurdles. 

Her second event was the 100-meter sprint. 

She had a great time and really enjoyed the experience ... until she found out she didn't place in either of her events. She ran well and was first or second in both of her heats. But not placing burst her bubble. And that's too bad. I hope she figures out that doing her best and improving with practice and effort is way better than not running at all.

Yeah, it’s not always about winning. I hope she keeps running too.

Hopefully she’ll realize that completing both of her first events and finishing high in her heats was GREAT for her first meet!

I agree. She did great and should be happy. She’s got great potential for improvement.
