I went to a high school track meet recently to watch my niece compete. It's not only fun but inspiring to see these youngsters put forward effort with lots of heart.
This was a preliminary track meet so the kids will get better. My niece has already cut 5 seconds off her 100 yard dash from 20 seconds to 15 seconds.
One of the wonderful things in sports or any measurable activity is to see how practice, learning and reaching deep for more effort can improve outcome. There are very few things in which we can't grow given desire and effort.
