5 at Five
Five at five in the pouring rain
I hit the road and I feel no pain.
The lightning brightens up the sky,
I’m lost in my thoughts as my feet do fly.
Running brings me great relief,
I clear my head as I grit my teeth.
My body groans as I roll out of bed,
But it springs to life once the shoes do tread.
My morning run gives me time to ponder,
As I collect my thoughts and allow some to wander.
I’m thankful for these five at five,
When my soul wakes up and I feel alive.
I really appreciated my run this morning. As I prepare for my day and for the 1st ever Perk Trail Half, these are just some of my thoughts.
Are you a runner? What do you do on your runs? What do you think about while you’re pounding the pavement?
