Two Runners and A Walker

I watched a video about ultra marathoners recently. I also feel that I should do more to make it to 5,000 steps a day. I probably do more. It’s just that I have not taken the trouble to count. It would help a great deal of I did.

The first runner sped by as I waited for my morning ride underneath an umbrella and disappeared round a corner without losing a step. The second runner stumbled past me on my walk home. The trainers dragged through the dirt and squealed on the tarmac, the body leaned forward to hold up the head, the arms barely moved. The lungs snatched air into a folded chest.

The walker saw this and continued walking.
