I am sure you have all seen the McKayla Maroney “I Am Not Impressed” photo. Even if you were not following the Olympics you probably saw it as it was trending big time, at least until Usain Bolt started running.
Anyway, I have to say, it get it. This girl expected a gold medal. She trained hard and was not fully satisfied with her performance on the vault. She expected more from herself. We have all been there. Sometimes you prepare really hard for something and things just don’t go your way.
I have certainly experienced that in running. I don’t even want to list the marathons I have trained for that didn’t pan out the way I had envisioned. Let’s not get into the shorter races, way to painful. As time passes, I get over the initial disappointment and find a way to appreciate my accomplishment.
From recent pictures, it looks like McKayla has already done that. Good for her! I like this girl, she has some spunk!
Thanks for following.
