The school cross-country run was today.  Pearl had told me she really wanted to get in the top ten.  Then she revised her goal to top twenty.  She did not want to be in the top six because those kids have to compete in a regional competition and she didn’t want to have to run a race again.

I couldn’t be there to watch/support her this morning because of other things going on, and I felt bad about that.

In the end, she was happy with her performance.  And that makes me happy.  She ran the whole course, and she didn’t come last.  Plenty good enough, for both of us.
