I’ve always thought that she was a fast runner, just not an overly athletic child. She’s graceful, as evident by her skills in dance, but in other sports, she is good, but doesn’t always have the killer competitive instinct, which I think is fine. However, she could always run, especially when it is away from me.
Whatever be the case, I’m glad she’s enjoying it, and track is a great way to stay fit and find a niche in a group of kids at school. Like I’ve always said, at a young age, being competent at sports will give you carte blanche with a lot of the kids, unlike being academic, which will get you farther in life, but won’t always win you points with your peers. If you can combine both, then you’re doing okay.
I’ve noticed that the track culture is quite a scene, as well. What would you expect with a large group of teenagers grouped together in track clothes in a big open field with warm sunny weather? Nature will inevitably kick in.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to chellepeltier for the pic.
