Courage. Webster’s says it is the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. Runners have courage. It’s different, of course, throughout the running community. For some, it’s required just to lace up the shoes for each daily run.
For the more seasoned, it may be facing the pain that comes with the fast pace. For others, it’s having what it takes to finish the long distance.
The people and families of law enforcement also have courage, sometimes sacrificing health and life in their chosen duty to protect the rest of us. On January 12, The Resolution Run for Heroes in Gig Harbor, Washington brought both of these groups together to raise money for the Behind The Badge Foundation.
On occasion, the cruel actions of a coward can shake our view of the world. It can leave us doubting society and making us feel that most of the world is like the coward. Events like the Resolution Run for Heroes is a reminder that there is strength in community and that those with courage far outnumber the cowards.
