A marathon wait

nearly over

in less than
four weeks
a
first
marathon

with this remarked
first
5k
10k
half marathon
5000m track
(should have been
10,000 track also
but days got wrong there)

have also had their
first moments in the sun-shine
or rain
whichever
english
welsh
shade of
present
became
in the past 20 months or so

abingdon’s spectre looms

but it looms without
fear

even ‘training’ wouldn’t really reflect
i am
because at the same time
i am
not

its a race of celebration
rather
the celebration to run

much more important
to me
would be the cross country season
which embarks just prior
the week indeed before

cross country and
autumn leagues
of past
now present

school fields
of dew
now due

as
the one missed
last year
for all those
right
reasons
but

still missed

in abingdon
a celebration
therefore

a passage of time
reinstated
reinvigorated
relearnt
steps and lines
accumulated
within
and beyond

an
expression
achieved
through the
simple
action
of form

in running
here

in run
there

breath to stride

swansea10k_02

in spirit
of running
all
i yearn
