Tripping through the knee high grass,
Nettles grazing scraped up knees
But still those smiles run deep in us
As the runner’s high sets in
And all onlookers stop to wonder
What it is that makes us glitter
In this world of doom and gloom.
There is a lyric in Madonna’s song ‘Time Goes By’ that goes: those who run seem to have all the fun. That line has stuck with me over the last fifteen years over the many hundreds of miles I have covered.
The thing is, I think Madonna actually knows her stuff, and I think that us runners do seem to have a lot of fun.
Whenever I’m feeling a bit low, I put running videos on Youtube and just watch people having fun racing and training. I’m guessing it’s all down to the endorphins, but I’m definitely going to make the most of it.
