Running Poem R066

Running and shopping –
Together at the same time –
Saves time and money –
While getting things I need done –
Made for a great runner’s high

Notes to this poem…

Saturday morning sewing notions and light groceries shopping run. I got to enjoy running, in the sun no less, and shopping. At the same time, I saved a bus ticket, and time as it would have taken me longer to run separately and bus for my shopping, never mind the shopping time, than the whole shopping run! Additionally, this day’s shopping was for things I needed, not wanted, so it had immediate value and relevance.

Combined, it made me very happy. Few regular runs’ highs are as good as one of these shopping runs! 🙂

The R-series poems were composed while I was out running, in an effort to find time for writing in a life that is always getting busier.
