Take back the Run 5k

Two girls were sexually assaulted in the Lakewood area while out running.  For runners, running is a way to get away from stress and pain.  The running community came together on Friday September 19th to "Take back the Run".  As a 2 time rape survivor, domestic violence survivor, runner, triathlete, and yogi I fully understand the violation and how physical fitness can help overcome traumas.  I was there to help the girls take back their run and show support.  It was a very emotional run but the turnout was amazing.  Survivors are not alone.  The color for rape is teal, so I rocked my "Superman" teal and teal nails.
