The other day I took the kids to the track. They ride their bikes and play ball while I run. On this particular day Makenna came riding up alongside me on her bike and this is the conversation that followed:
Makenna: How many laps do you have to run today
Makenna: How many have you done already?
Makenna: Oh, so you have 6 laps left. Are you going to run any races this year?
Me: I hope so.
Makenna: Is this as fast as you are going to run in your races?
Makenna: Is this your best?
Me: It is today.
Makenna: Oh, that's okay then if you come in last - as long as you do your best!
Then away she went. Maybe I should start doing some speed work, you think?
