The Goal

SOLC: Day 7

Track season began today for my daughter.  She was dreading the practice because she hasn’t trained in months.  During our ride home after practice she began to tell me how the coach showed them the current school track records.  She was shocked to find out that she was one one hundredth of a second from beating the current record.

“Mom, I’m going to beat the record.”  The look of exhaustion disappeared and was replaced with a look of determination.

“I am going to have the record for the school.”

“Well, I believe you can do it.”  I told her as we continued home.

With that, she closed her eyes and fell asleep.

The goal has been set and I know that she will not rest until it is achieved.

I guess it’s going to be an interesting season!
