Running: In 6 Words

The New York Times online asked people if they could sum up love (and loss) in 6 words.  People responded.  Here are some examples of what they wrote:

“ Met in leftist group; felt right.”

“Love means never leaving me behind”

“Saw him. Hired Him. Married Him.”

“Ups, downs, and repeat. That’s love.”

“Engaged in three weeks; still married.”

“My dogs give me better kisses."

“Warning, love: I blog my breakups.”

Of course, after reading these, I had to make up my own for me and Ang.

Locked eyes. The rest is history.
Blue eyed girl, took me by storm.
That little blondie turned me gay.
That's a joke.

Since this is a running blog, I tried to think of how I could sum up running in 6 words.  I came up with a ton!

First comes love, then comes marathons.

Life is sweeter when I'm running.

I run for peace and pizza.

I push myself, to find myself.

We run, therefore we are awesome.

More than exercise.  It's a lifestyle.

Running: My therapist, lover and friend.

Sexy calves: More reason to run. 
I could go on all day!

What would your 6 word running poem be?
