Running

My heart
& feet beat
down the street —
legs & lungs
churn & burn —
fists uppercut
the air —
miles fly by
& I feel alive
running.

    Oh, how your poem made me remember, Tyler! Hundreds of 10K’s, a half-marathon, and a full marathon — oh how alive I was then — almost exactly 30 years ago in my crazy 40’s! But it was a GOOD crazy. And how I wish I could do it all again…..*sigh* But the path I follow now is a walking path…and it’s good, too! Thank you so much for helping to keep my memories alive!

    My wife and I ran our first half marathon yesterday. I finished with a time of 1 hour and 36 minutes and placed 75th overall (out of 1,800 runners). I am very proud of my wife for training hard since January and finishing in 2 hours and 24 minutes. It was a gorgeous day filled with sun, friends and fun 🙂 Today I’m moving around like a zombie, my muscles locked in a state of rigor mortis. As a runner, I wouldn’t have it any other way…these are the moments you live for!

  3. Not a runner myself but having a husband who is I can really relate to your words which are really good. Not quite inspiring me to run just yet though, lol 🙂

    Well done, both of you.

    • Thank you, my friend! It was an experience my wife and I will always treasure. I’m hoping to train for a marathon next year if my schedule allows. Both my parents are marathon runners…my Dad ran the Boston Marathon twice, so the bar is set pretty high in my family! Hope you are doing well. Have a wonderful weekend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  5. Congrats to you both on your half marathon!

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! It was a great first half marathon 🙂 Both of my parents are marathon runners…my Dad ran the Boston Marathon twice, so the bar has been set very high in my family! I’m hoping to train for the marathon next year if my schedule allows. Hope you’re having a wonderful week 🙂
      Cheers,
