To most people these are just numbers on a hand but to these kids these are numbers of pride. They are their numbers for their race. The coaches wrote them on their hands with permanent marker. The numbers last for at least a day if they don’t try to scrub them off. My kids asked if they could keep them on for school the next day. I said “Definitely, wear it with pride that you ran your best in a race that most kids could never complete. You trained ached, sweat and worked for that number.” It’s not just a number it’s a symbol of all their hard work.
What numbers do you wear in your life?
