As a Roadrunner, what does it mean to Run Boldly? Whatever you do, run forward. It may be difficult to see what is in front of you at times, and you may even fall. “When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reason get you back up.” (Les Brown) And keep running forward.
