Is This Your Best?

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
Me: 9
Makenna:  How many have you done already?
Me: 3
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?
Me:  Maybe.
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?
