The Joy of Running

I "jump" with the bang of the gun.
Slowly at first, confined by the crush of the  crowd I start to run
Faster and faster as the runners start to stretch out
A sea of multicolored jerseys undulating over the rolling
country road
I will the sweet air deep into my lungs
A light sweat forms and I feel my stride begin to Quicken
My feet tap the moving ground with a light caress
I start to pass and I am passed
The energy of the runners carries me
I feel great! My heart is filled with......JOY
