    Question when do we wince?

    "Meera was otherwise a brave girl I mean for her height (she was the shortest girl in her class), she could jump over the hugest of the puddles without even wincing."Is the use of wince here okay? I have used it here to describe her facial expression....is it necessarily associated with pain or distress?Is my usage wrong?
