As a coach I've had to make some tough decisions. This week I've got a really tough one to make. There's a kid who has been running a specific relay all season long with a myriad of other guys. This last week I've been looking at who has the best chances of making it the furthest in the post-season. This particular young man is the slowest of all the participants in his relay. There is a faster athlete. I know he's going to be angry and disappointed that he's being pulled from this event. Do I hurt one kid's feelings or hold back four others? My brain hurts thinking about this.
I knew there were tough decisions to make in life. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger right?
