Good for the soul

A three mile run
Is good for the soul
Barely enough time to sweat
Long enough to heal

To set you free
To just let you be
To give you a breath of the fresh air
To push you in the world without a care
To pull you out again without haste
Just a hint, a glimpse, a taste.

This is running at its finest and purest
Its simplest
Lace on, lace off
No watch required

All you need is the desire
You'll find the sweet joy
Running among the trees
Catching the sun setting
A hint of a spring breeze
Hope springs again
The soul is cleansed yet again
All is well
With the pitter patter
Of sneakered feet.
