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.
