Here’s my prayer for all the runners out there.
I pray today won’t be too windy
Too hot, too cold or too sunny
I pray to avoid an excuse as to why
I can’t be bothered to go out today
I pray that I have courage to join a running club
I hope my new shiny trainers don’t rub.
I pray that I am properly hydrated
To avoid feeling a little light headed
I pray that I haven’t drunk to much you see
I’d hate to have to furtively pee behind a tree
I pray my gel will not make my hands too sticky
That the gradients are manageable, not too tricky
I pray that I can soon get in my stride
Start feeling fine not feeling too tired
I pray that every step will be better than the last
Maintain the pace be fairly fast
I pray that I will last the course
A run with my wife won’t end in divorce
I pray that I won’t suffer again, plantar fasciitis
A painful injury it certainly is!
I pray that I will have a PB
However hard you try there’s no guarantee
I pray I do not get runners’ nipple
Looking forward to being rewarded with a little tipple.
I pray that I will enjoy the run
Because finishing strong is always fun.
