A Runner's Prayer

Today, we seek to remember that the starting line is wherever we are standing, but the finish is wherever we choose...
Today, we strive to strengthen the most important muscle, the heart...
Today, we will run towards something, and not away from it...
Today, we vow never to run by ourselves, but to always remember those that are running with us, even when we're alone...
Today, we run not to lose anything, be it weight or finishing time, we run instead to find, to find ourselves...
Today, we run because we choose to...
Today, we focus on the most important step there is, the next one...
Today, we run not to feel free, but because we are free...

And Today, we run on borrowed strength, strength that cannot be killed, for it belongs to none of us. It is not ours to keep, but rather to pass between us, when needed.
