To: Running, From: Me

Roses are red, violets are blue,
I love running, don’t you?

My calves and heart tightly compressed,
I’ve fallen in love with you, running, I must confess.

From roads to trails, hills to surf,
True love is running all over this city- it’s my turf.

Miles behind and miles ahead,
Forever I will run and lightly tread.

You’ve given me fond memories, many medals, and lotsa chafing,
And only for you, at dark:30am, I’m waking.

Mind clear, heart happy and legs so strong,
I’ll see you at the finish line of my next marathon!

Dear running, sometimes you make me feel like I’m gonna cry…
Yet whether you know it or not, you are my Valentine!
