Morning run

Slip on the shoes and tie the knot

Make it a double to make sure

breath in, breath out

One foot in front of the other

Headlamp bobbing along the ground

breath in, breath out

Round the first curve, still stiff

Heart rate not quite settled yet

breath in, breath out

Thoughts start to trickle in

Give them space, they make the miles melt away

breath in, breath out

Concrete and asphalt… wishing for soft dirt

Pre-work runs require efficiency though

breath in, breath out

The final night chill descends moments before dawn

The morning light soon chases away the frost and fog

breath in, breath out

Approaching the final turns towards home

Mind still racing with thoughts

breath in, breath out

Stop the watch, turn off the light

Breath in, breath out one last time

Begin the day


Beer, running, and geeky things.
