Post-Run Appetite

post run appetite

Though my run is done

My appetite has just begun

My stomach feels hollow

I can’t wait to have a big swallow

of eggs, bagel and a soy latte’

My mouth is ready for a parte’*

Oh, it tastes so good

to be eating what I should

The food is a fuel

a righteous yummy  tool

that keeps my cheeks bright

my legs strong and tight

my eyes wide and clear

so I can train with no fear
