How Will You Run?

One finishes for gold and glory
Two finishes for strength and honor
Three finishes for peace and service

Thousands walk
Hundreds trot
Dozens run
Yet millions cross the line

If we are to share this road
At the end, when we cross
Our strength failing us
Will there be hands to steady us
Or to greet us as we fall

How will the end greet you?

  1. i hope the good Lord grants me continued good health and strength to hear those infamous words before I die – “Bobby Dominguez, YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!” I hope to cheat my ultimate fate until I cross that line in Kona.
