Justin Runs the Rebel Race 2012 (Maryland/DC I)
Here is a "Before" and "After" pic.
So on June 7th, 2012 we all decided to drive to 4101 Stansbury Mill Rd Monkton, Maryland 21111, which is where the Rebel Race is. We started the race at the same time but finished at different time but ALL IN ALL WE DID IT TOGETHER!!! My husband and other spouses sat in support and shouted as we ran across the finish line. It was amazing to see my baby at the finish line waiting for me.
Being HIV positive doesn't mean that you cannot do things that you've had your heart set on. You have to stay focused and believe in yourself. Do NOT let HIV dictate who you are or what you cannot do. If there is anyone out there that says you cannot do something because you are HIV positive then you tell them that there isn't anything you cannot do.
Map of the course -- Maryland/DC I.
Rebel Race is offering a 3.1 mile race and a 9.3 mile race in the Maryland/DC area. (The Mid-Atlantic 9.3 mile race is a brutal extension of the 3.1 mile race)
