I’ll tell you that I went through a period of tremendous anxiety, so bad I didn’t know if I’d pull through. Turns out this happens to hundreds, thousands, millions of people every day. Did I know that at the time? No. Would it have helped if I did? YES.
We all have our ups and downs. But I’m making it my mission to make real change – this foundation does that. This is more than a race. This is an opportunity to tell kids (mine, soon) that it’s ok to not feel normal. It’s ok to be different. It happens to a lot of people, and if you see a friend going through it, be there. If you go through it, talk about it. Be present, it can change a life.
