Runners

At the start line

26 miles and 385 yards ahead of them

 No rain

 No sleet

No snow

Can keep them from the end

Up heart-break hill

Straight ahead

Crowds roaring

Runners pushing

Runners exhilarated

Finish line is within sight

Painful last moments melting away

There’s no turning back now

The runners hard work paid off in full

With a successful finish

the glory is all theirs

365 days from now

All will gather again

To cheer on the runners

Of the next Boston Marathon

Through thick and thin

Each runner is

Unstoppable until they cross

The finish line
