            Training

            Running means that you will
            never die. That’s why you come back,
            year after year, day after day
            to your training routes
            the sound of your shoes hitting the ground
            like a dream of heart and rhythm
            one beat at a time, then another and another
            that horizon in your mind still invisible,
            beautiful, always beyond reach.

i think this poem is not just about running, but about life itself.that there are dreams we are chasing.

Went running last night, when the words:"that horizon in your mind still invisible...beyond reach" hit me. That's why life is so beautiful I guess.
