Now Brianna's a sprinter. She's super fast for short distances, she's not really good at endurance for longer distances, we're working on it. Today's race was 1.25km (.77 miles). We've powerwalked 3km on a fairly regular basis, but never ran anything more than a quarter km.
So we discussed how it was not important that she came in first place. It wasn't even important if she came in last place. If she was tired, she could walk. As long as she finished.

|That was HARD!|
