I used to think that hiding,

was the only way to survive. 

Then I found running,

and my eyes opened wide. 


I ran to escape and then I ran to be free,

now I run to connect with my team that I call a community. 

Running to connect is like running the thrive, 

for who can thrive with out taking a stride. 


A stride towards excellance and a stride towards peace, 

a stride towards believing that you can be anything. 

So run the race with courage, whatever your faults,

run the race with dignity, for when it is finished: 

again you may start.
