I am not feelin’ good.
Instead of staying in my sheets
I will hit the streets
It was a bad day
But this will be a good run.
I decide to wear one of my “marathon finisher” shirts
It reminds me of what I love to do
As soon as I start to have second thoughts,
My running shoes are pulling me out the door
And then I’m off
My feet strike the ground with emotions
Sad, angry, stressed, the pavement feels it all.
My pace is fast
I am flying, my shadow dancing behind me
The wind rushes in my face and the cool air runs through my body
Now I am feelin’ good.
One mile isn’t enough, I know it too well.
Of course I can do more than two, I smile to myself.
Five miles later,
I’m left with nothing but a smile.
