Thirty-eight is running for her life.
Health, of course, is her concern, not fear.
It seems that humankind was born to run,
Regardless whether after game or from,
There being early on just axe and spear.
Yet even now, a daily run feels right.

Evolved to use our bodies, we must fight
Illnesses whose provenance is clear,
Grappling with the damage we have done,
Healing ourselves by running, running where
The labor of our longing greets the light.
