In the spirit of Valentines Day, I dedicate this massacre of the English language to the love of my life…running!
You and I were introduced, not so many years ago.
We didn’t hit it off at first, you looked so fast and I was slow.
But over time you grew on me, and now we’re rarely ever apart.
Although at times you’ve caused me pain, you’ll always have a place in my heart.
Because of you I’ve seen new places,
made new friends and conquered races.
When my life’s been in a wreck,
you’ve helped me get my thoughts in check.
You’re not afraid of rain or snow,
wherever I am it’s good to know,
that you’ll be ready to pull me through,
on road or trail – just me and you.
