The Thrill of the Beginner
by Adam Reyher 8/7/03
Copyright 2003 Adam Reyher. All rights reserved.

Wake up one morning only to see
That my shoes are there waiting for me
I wipe my eyes and let out a groan
For I don't want to go out only to put my feet to the stone

But my excitement grows 'till it's impossible to resist
I fly out of bed and into the midst
My feet start moving and my heart starts beating
My arms move slowly and my face starts heating

"One foot after the other." I tell myself
"Don't worry body, you'll be proud of yourself"
I pick up my pace once again
For I welcome myself to a runner's world

I start to feel a pain in my side
As if it was split open wide
But I don't care for I'll go forever
I'm hooked on this sport, this fun, this...whatever

The thrill of the run is impossible to describe
Especially for a beginner who finishes with pride
So get off of the couch, go out to the thrill
For there's a world out there called 'Runner's Free Will."

"We must not allow the clock and the calendar
to blind us to the fact that each moment of life
is a miracle and mystery."
- H.G. Wells
