As the runner knows the road

As the runner knows the road, the trail longs for the runner.

His feet find sure footing as he makes his way up the trail. He is one hundred and fifty miles into this race. This ultra marathon has twenty seven miles left. He hasn’t seen another person for hours. He hasn’t seen another runner for the past day.

He crests the trail, and starts down again. Its all down hill from here. Down hill to the finish, when he finishes he may rest.
