I Hate Running

My Mother was a runner


My Father was a runner.


My sister was a runner.


They all ran the 100 meter.


I was not a runner. I hate running


I ran because my Mother Father & Sister ran.


I have long legs. I’m built for long distance.


But I hate running. I hated it in high school track and field.


My coach would say “Why are you running the 200? You’ve got long legs! You can do the 3K no sweat”.


But I hate running.


I run today to honor my father and mother. my sister, whose track meets were the daily activity of my family. I run for Coach Gray today, who was right.
