Pledge

I want to run.

  • I want to run until my legs want to fall off.
  • I want to run until my heart no longer beats in anxiety or desperation.
  • I want to run until my mind knows of nothing but my breath, my muscles and joints, and my sweat.
  • I want to run until my only desire is oxygen and water and ground to tread over.
  • I want to run until the rhythm of my footsteps and my breath becomes ingrained in my pulse forever and evermore.
                    And then I want to run ten thousand miles more.
