My sports dream for my daughter

20120607-082058.jpg

Over the past weekend my father and I enjoyed the OHSAA state track meet a tradition I have greatly enjoyed for the past 9 yrs. Recently I have pictured my daughter running certain events and competing at the highest level of the sport. But witnessing this incredible story just a few feet away changed my mind on my wish for her sports career.

I always wanted her to be the best at whatever she choose to do but now I just wish she would the kind of heart Megan Vogel did. After winning the state championship in the mile Megan had to compete in the 2 mile less than an hour later. As Megan came towards the end she approached an oppoent that literally couldnt crawl towards the finish. I’m getting goosebumps after just writing this post. As she approached the struggling runner, she not only picked her up and carried her to the end but was sure to have her competitor finish in front of her. That meant Vogel finished last. Something she has never done before. But her response to finishing last was that it was fate that lead her to the last place.  Thank you Meghan for changing my view on my daughters “sports career.”
