Ode To A Runner

I ran in grade shcool and was proven fastest in my day. My track coach once told me that I would make myself and her, very rich someday. Well that didn't happen; but none the less, I was indeed the fastest because I wanted to be. As with everything you hope to achieve in life... You have to want it.

I've given up a lot. On myself, my goals, some of my hopes and parts of my dreams. But never on life! I get sedentary at times, and watch as everyone else runs by. That must stop. It stops now!

I just finished watching a movie, "Miles From Nowhere"(Again).
I recall this quote...

They say that every morning in Africa, an Antelope wakes up.
It knows it must out run the fastest Lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a Lion wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest Antelope
or it will starve.
It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or an antelope,
because when the sun comes up... you better be running.
