Remembering my manners,

I wanted to  simply ask her…

How well was she doing

Considering how “fur ?”

(that is…how far)

She and a friend went running

In a half-marathon….

Came in last but managed to last

Til the finish was won!

I used to jog a mile or two,

Gave up in cold weather…

Icy roads never my friends

And a walk then takes forever.

Anyone who pushes themselves

To personal feats–that’s great–

I so admire this friend of mine

Who runs determined and  straight!
