I am a runner

I can test my limits

With my own footfalls

I am an athlete

Determined, relentless

When I run

I am alive

Energy coursing through my veins

My breaths are short

But my strides are long

Sweat crashes over me

Like waves in the ocean

But the pain is only temporary

The finish line an oasis of glory

Calling out to me to persevere

Faster, faster, faster...

I am a runner

Free to choose my own path

And determine my own destiny
