Mr Grump

This is a poem I have written about some who was dear to me

It is hard to say how I feel
This is not 
Not what?
You have taught me how to live
Taught me there is away
Taught me to take the challenge
Embrace it
Use it 
Hold it
Find away
Move forward
And live
What can't be done
Find away
Look around

You have taught me 
Taught me to love
Taught me to laugh
Taught me about me
My dreams
My life
My hope
To push the limits
Find it and use it

I will miss you 
Thanks for showing 
My life 
For what it is
For the gift of your life
The privlege of 
Knowing you

Walk run

Some times when out running I find that I need to walk. I had thought of it as cheating a little, after all surely when you say you are running you mean running and walking is not running. I have since found out that is is quite common and beginners often walk some of the way even in races. For me it allows me to recover a little so I can carry on and complete that days miles.
