Unpopular opinion, but becoming complacent with a "participation medal" is exactly what OP shouldn't do. This should be the kick in the ass needed for OP to start getting better.

I wrestled in high school. My first time wrestling varsity, my coach sent me to a tournament. He knew I was going to get my ass handed to me but he sent me because of the exposure and experience.

And although I completely sucked, I learned what works, what doesn't, corrected some minor details that had a huge impact.

You can only become better by going against those better than you. I think that's what #2 was getting at.

It would've been better if your mother "sparred" you the joke (just had to say it). All in all, being able to participate and compete is amazing - you'll get even better and have more opportunities to get first place!

It's better than staying at home and doing nothing. You're exercising and keeping fit. Speaking of which, you should teach us how. It seems fun lol
