to all my friends

April 25, 2010

Often my only friend,
companion,
listener,
lover,
comforter.
My running.

Moving your legs
rhythmically
propelling yourself
forward.
Steady and
Reliable.

Not just from here to there.
But from
in my head,
to setting
me
free.

Heartache eases,
stress sweats away,
problems get solved,
under the guise
of health and
exercise.

Much more than words
could explain.
Wellspring of creativity,
thought, balance,
freedom.
My running.

  1. Running for you is like snowboarding for me!


  2. Very nice. We all have our ways of escaping. I’m happy that yours is fulfilling. Not everyone has something to completely remove them from situations.


  3. It seems that, for you, running is that private ‘place’ that we all need in order to meditate and/or take a leisurely think. Running also allows the body to renew itself. I like the way you express that.
