Poetry in motion

Just a little post today.

Last week, I babysat for my friend’s 9 year old daughter, who is super-cool and taught me some hip-hop dance moves. You can imagine how great I looked! But she also writes copious amounts of poetry…and when she asked me for a subject, I obviously suggested running.  So here you go…

Running…by the Cool Kid

Running is tiring.

Running makes you hot.

If you’re not fit, you sometimes lose the plot.

So make sure you’re fit

Before you run a mile

So that you don’t have a pile…of your sweaty clothes …

but just a big smile.

Sweaty clothes AND a big post-run, endorphin-high smile!

 

I think we can all identify with that!

About Cathryn

I'm from Wiltshire, a beautiful rural county in the south of England. My husband, son and I moved to California in August 2010 with my husband's job, whilst I stay at home with The Dude, our gorgeous five year old son. I love running and cycling. I'm a Christian. I am finally learning to cook (about time too). I'm loving exploring this new part of the world and meeting its wonderful people.

    Very glad you didn’t provide sub-topics. Variations into mid-run p@@’s, throwing up, getting lost, loud farting, getting whistled at, and changing clothes in cold car parks would have been much less romantic!

    I didn’t tell her any of that stuff 😉 Just how great it is. Not about MRPs or any of the things you mention that never happened to me, obviously. x
