Finishing a run

Early morning, 
you finish a long run as
the sun comes up. 

You catch your breath
and wonder if this
is how it will feel. 

When all is said and done, 
when you close your eyes
for the very last time, 
will you not forget your worry, 
think to yourself, 
“Ah, now wasn’t that great?”

It’s the ultimate
sense of accomplishment, 
the smile, knowing that you did it, 
knowing that you played your part, 
that you were here.
