Hold your head up. Be fierce. Put on your shoes and your hat and run in the downpour. Get your body onto that starting line. Stare a horrible situation in the face, and go straight toward it. Joy and suffering are universal stories. Share them: it helps decrease isolation and loneliness. Acknowledge fear and move forward anyway. WOMAN UP.

Support all the women. Be conscious that everyone is fighting a battle. Grant others the benefit of the doubt. Celebrate and promote others' successes. Running (and life) is not a zero-sum sport. The feel-good moments don't come every day. When they do, take the time to fully bask in them. Revel in others' victories, and support others during their struggles. WOMAN UP.
