today I overcame some serious hurdles
shots were fired
spears were thrown
discs were launched
despite the voice
none of this was passive!
today there was running around at full speed
passing the baton when needed
jumping up and over and into whatever brought safety
needing to grab necessary food and water when possible
despite the sound of it
none of this was really dangerous!
goes around and around
at a track meet
where the oldest events in sports history
happily played out on a gorgeous day
while a was an official for throwing events
(and really did dodge some close throws!)
the truth is
it was great to get
back to the track –
to feel back on track –
bruises and all!
