product description

The Race is about finding the strength to keep going no matter what the circumstances. Sometimes, a word of encouragement is all it takes to push us over the finish line. 

This inspirational poem tells the story of a boy in a race who falls again and again. Each time the boy trips, he wants to give up. He knows that he has lost any chance of winning and what’s worse—he has disappointed his father who is watching from the sideline.

Even so, each time the boy falls, he gets back up and runs as hard as he can. His father’s words give him the motivation he needs to power through: "You haven't lost at all; for winning is no more than this, to rise each time you fall." The Race is a moving example of perseverance against all odds. This profound lesson in determination will help you win the race of life.

About Author

D.H. (Dee) Groberg deeply believes in people and in their inherent potential. He doesn’t have to “build” what is already there. He just helps release it. He has real life experience with a broad range of organizations, from some of the world’s largest multinational to some of the smallest start-ups. He has worked and lived all over the world—in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, South East Asia. He has directed training programs in Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East—not only for expatriates, but for local executives too. (Dee speaks several languages.)

Dee is the middle child from a family of eleven, and he and his wife, Sharon, have six children themselves. He enjoys reading, writing, poetry, music, learning, teaching, movies, traveling, swimming, skiing, scuba diving, time with his friends and family...An article once written about him said, “If variety is the spice of life, then Dee is well seasoned.”
