The Five Miler

vac5

back to this

five mile series
evenings
road running
the leagues

this time
Battersea Park

where once
upon a..

South Yorkshire
‘Assisted By Nike’
Road Race League
1985

Askern Rotherham
Loxley Barnsley
Rockingham

esturies of the republic
full flow

2016
risen of tide
breadth and breath illuminated
abridged
sun set
by Thames

in all barmy splendor
tree lined
avenues
the here, the now
VAC Masters Series
off
and
running

the joy
‘ard t’ put’
but readily present
5 mile echoes
abound

times of old
just that
you know
Askern roads
beaten tracks
the chase
whippets and greyhounds
caught, catched
rabbits
headlights
26:57

well yes

33:34
follows
adrift
down river
no less
in run is ran

not withstanding
the years
what is in those times of then
to this, of these now?

running again

that 5 mile distance
of an evening
as the sun goes down
by river
down avenue
this season starts
commences
over and over
joy accumulated
and

this time
dont envisage
dont imagine
dont let’s hear

the silence of running shoes
put away again

the ‘veteran’ years
teach
heed

its time to run

in the now

  1. Sounds as though you had a good run – looks as though you had a decent ‘battle’ with Tony Harran. Hopefully, I will make it next month.
