Running and Thinking

The things that go through my mind when I run.
Usually, it starts
With a song, this morning “Glory Days.” I’m
Not sure why, how could
I know that the rising sun
Could make
Me remember all those
Nights
Hanging with the crew
Back when my hair was
Something other than white. I brought it
Back to the run
Just when the breathing became labored,
When the sweat was dripping,
As I needed to stay focused
To finish the run
Strong.
The battle of the mind, thinking of what was
Versus what is
Made for a nice distraction,
A chance to dream,
A chance to take leave of the moment
While getting hot without the bother.
Man, the stuff I think about
When
I’m
Running.
