Effing ninety seconds,
That’s not a long time
Over the course of twenty-six miles,
But that’s how many extra I used
Beyond my goal time.
There are plenty of excuses,
Rain, sleet, snow, and hail
Each driven sideways by a cold wind…
Forget that, I loved the challenge,
Especially after listening to Goggins for two days.
Age? Can’t do that either,
There were some super fast times
Chalked up by old heads like me.
No excuses, I ran what the clock said I ran,
Every effing winterized, long-of-the-tooth step.
