Whatever challenges you might be facing, we want you to know they do not define you. You have worth, value and purpose. Shut out the self doubt and the "haters.” There are eight of us on the race committee. In one way or another, each of us has used running to help us discover a strength and determination to do hard things. The same stamina and perseverance we use to run has helped us overcome anxiety, depression, physical limitations, chronic illness and more. Running hasn't solved our problems, but it has given us a confidence we didn't have before. We want to share that with you. We’re here to provide a positive and uplifting environment where you have the opportunity to conquer something physically hard; proving to yourself that you are stronger than the challenges you are facing. On your bib there is place where you can write what you are "rising above" in 2018…so come Race Around with us. Rise Above your doubts and fears and cheer on others doing the same!
