The Hangover Run Poem:
I read a great athletic poem by Tom Craik on Stormy http://tomsrunnow.blogspot.com/ ... and that put me in a 'poetic mood'. So I created this poem on my run today- though it certainly doesn't relay any uber athleticism. Enjoy!
The Hangover Run
Drank in moderation, or so I thought
Woke up this morning-apparently NOT
Morning meal diddn’t sit right,
Run or not, with myself I fight.
Get that Sunday long run in!
Today I pay for last nights sin.
Head is knocking, stomach queasy,
This run is not going to be easy!
Outside I go into fresh air,
Dew on the ground, wind in my hair.
With every step, I feel more clear
As I run off last nights beer!
Heading home I sprint ahead
Knowing that is where I’ll find my bed.
Second wind, now I’m cruising
Hot damn, I do love running!
3 hrs down, I’m feeling spent,
I did it, I did it! So glad I went!
(or, an alternative ending for those hardcore partiers out there)
3 hrs down, I'm feeling great,
Now lets go out and celebrate!
