The Scrubs Version 2015


Jogging one’s memory

On one of those
Come back trails
Of running

You know the ones
Where you’ve not run for years
And then..

The dream arrives..

The reality hasn’t..

And before you know it
You’ve joined a running club
And a race is on the horizon


Eleven years ago
I joined London Heathside

My one and only race
In Heathside colour occurred
On the Scrubs
10th Janauary 2004
To be

And so
It happened again
(Yesterday or rather)
6th December 2015
To be..

But in different colours
For a different
Running Club
The Serpi’s
Or rather
To be..

Greeted this time by the gale
If not so much, the mud

To all presented
Geared up
For the Met League
CX race
Or Rather
Cross country
To be..

A time of 42:46
In 2004
To become
In 2015
For the 8k
Or 5 miles
To be..

Well unlike 2004
The dream
More reality
Within stride
And spikes
Of this years’ CX
