    sweat dripping
    legs weighted tripping
    arms heavy
    head bowed
    breathing hard
    watch checked
    hands grab water
    spilling
    over the head
    awakening new life
    body/spirit/ mind,
    sees a goal
    and the rhythm lifts
    long pass yards or hurdles
    pass the short sprints
    immediacy
    and its over
    in seconds.
    No -
    the long distance runner
    endures..
    .has an "eye on the prize"
    taking time, working on every detail
    every probability,
    working on
    the mental, physical, spiritual
    to ENDURE
    reach the goal
    not be last
    but
    to LAST
    til the end
    when the final lap is in sight

    can you see it?
    can you
    take the time to WORK it out
    all the DETAILS,
    BE READY for
    expected and unexpected?
    can you BE
    the LONG DISTANCE RUNNER
    not the short SPRINT--er
    can you
    SEE THE GOAL?
    maybe you/we should.



    endure
    last
    work details
    be ready
    long distance runner
    sprint----er
    see the goal!

    ...there's nothing like poetry
    that embodies "Inspiration"

    Thanks for inspiring me
    to keep on...keeping on!

    Love this peace!

    Encore!
