Wilmington Athletes take on May Races and Top Finishes

“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.”
~ Walter Elliot

May was fast and furious for our Without Limits Athletes
Thankfully the heat held off for most of the month, but in it’s place was rain… lots and lots of rain. But none-the-less, our athletes pushed through, ran strong and of course brought home new PRs and podium finishes. Congratulations to our incredible team.
