We invite you to join us at 7:00 AM for our Back on My Feet pre-race circle.
If you want a small glimpse of what it’s like to run with us Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, jump in our circle alongside 
Back on My Feet members, alumni, volunteers, and supporters as we get ready to race!
We’ll cover any important announcements and conclude with the serenity prayer together (below).
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things that I can
And the wisdom to know the difference
Why? The serenity prayer is an integral part of recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.
And with ~75% of our members being in recovery, we want Back on My Feet to be a part of their progress
and recovery moving forward. Join us on race day!



Stick around after the race for snacks from Strohemann, tunes from DJ Urban Cowboy, and complimentary massages from PhilaMassages!

Stay tuned for more information!
