I Run… Because I Won’t Give Up

UltraMarathon Man Dean Karnazes said, “Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl ifyou must; just never give up.”

The pursuit of social justice calls for that same resolve. We can just never give up. Imagine if we gave up? If Rosa Parks got up from her seat on the bus? If Susan B. Anthony decided that the right to vote was unimportant? If Mary Lyon believed less in the education of women? Where would we be then? Where would we be now?

Yesterday, June 5, was National Running Day. I ran in the morning because I could. I ran because I wanted to be part of something larger than myself. I ran because I should never give up.

Last week I explored answers to the question, “What would I do if I weren’t afraid?” When it comes to social justice… (and running)… I won’t give up!
