An Ode to Running

I am out of school, my schedule is free

Time to get back into shape, time to get sweaty

Wait, I gotta stretch and tie up my shoes

Let’s get outside to run off last night’s booze

I will start with walking, nothing intense

I will start jogging after I pass that fence

Here we go, ready to burn some fat

All of which I put on in winter when I ate and sat

Exactly how long have I been jogging for?

I feel like I am going to die

Only ten minutes in, why god why

That crosswalk is blinking stop

I will get there quickly so I rest

I feel like I am failing, though I am trying my best

Why did I stop going to the gym again?

Why did I take such a long break?

I used to jog just fine, now a half-hour jog I just can’t take

My shorts are riding up and I hate this song

This is hell, but my reward will come when I am done

When I can flop on my bed with my cats after this run

Endorphins will flow through my body

Then I will eat a cheeseburger

I still have a few good years of my metabolism.
