The Garden 10 mile race has snuck up on me.  I have trained but as every race, I always wish I was in better condition.  One of the ways I figured I could show my respect to the Garden is to write a poem.  I don’t think I have written a poem since college so here it goes.  As always, keep running my fellow runners because you inspire me.  GO BRT!!!!


Garden o' Garden 10 mile race

Take it easy on me

So I can keep my pace.


Let’s play nice to each other

And be nice to me

I want us both to get out of this race injury free.


I have done my training

For all of your pain

Therefore I have lots to gain.


When it’s all said and done

This race will be fun

Your hills never end

And all my energy, I will spend.


I will worry about you until I hear the gun sound

Then all through the course my feet will pound

The finish line will be so sweet

So when I am done it will be such a treat.
