Charity Race - Lets be Open Contest

It's the day of the Cancer Charity Race
I will start slow, I don’t have the pace
of the athletes, that train day in and day out
with personal trainers, that helps, no doubt
I would, if I had the money to spare
except,  time to train seems to disappear, somwhere
never to be found again, so I will start at a trot
hoping, I wont miss that 5 hour slot
that is the maximum I have energy for
unless, I drink the booster drinks, or more
likely an intravenous, would be great
having energy on tap, not to be last crossing the gate.

    you did quite well with open lines, Seren. HOw long was that race?? I did a 5 K many years ago and came in somewhere in the middle of the large group. I remember I was not a runner and I had trained for it just one week before doing it. Boy did it kick my butt!!
