Short Poems

1. “The Runner’s High”
Feeling light on my feet
Endorphins rush and meet
My mind in a soothing retreat
This is the runner’s treat

2. “The Finish Line”
My feet pound the pavement
Heart racing with excitement
The cheers, the crowd’s enragement
The finish line is my attainment

3. “The Solo Run”
Just me and the road
Breathing in sync with my load
Thoughts, emotions, they all unfold
The solo run is my cathode

4. “The Running Group”
We run as one, with stride and grace
Pushing each other’s pace
The journey, not just the race
The running group is our happy place

Medium Poems

1. The Long Run

I run and run, never knowing where,
My heartbeat a steady drumming scare.
My feet pound into the worn-out ground,
The world rushing by without a sound.

I feel my bones come alive and awake,
My muscles tire but never break.
The wind whips through my hair and clothes,
My mind devoid of anything but lows.

My breath comes ragged as I push on,
The finish line so far gone.
But still, I run and refuse to stop,
My sweat a calling card for all to pop.

For there is nothing more freeing,
Than the miles that make me feel everything.

2. The Sprint

Inhale, exhale– my muscles tense,
I shake loose from my common sense.
My feet tap tap tap like a ticking clock,
As the countdown hurdles to its final knock.

The shot rings loud and I’m off,
My legs a blur, my heart a scoff.
I fly, I soar, I’m Spiderman,
The world rushes by in one grand bang.

And then, it’s over far too quickly,
The crowd roaring with applause so trickly.
My body spent, my breaths too deep,
But oh, what a joy to finally reap.

For there is nothing more thrilling,
Than the sprint that makes me feel everything.

3. The Finish Line

This race, so long and drawn-out,
Filled with doubt and never devout.
But now, at last, the line is in sight,
And I hold on tight with all my might.

My feet push into the ground so hard,
The finish line a beacon of reward.
My heart pounds in my chest so loud,
As I turn the final bend, awed.

And then, I cross the line at last,
My body shaking, my hunger past.
The joy that fills my heart and soul,
Is the biggest win of it all.

For there is nothing more rewarding,
Than the finish line that makes me feel everything.

Long Poems

The Runner’s Journey

In the stillness before dawn
The runner laces up their shoes
With determination in their eyes
And a thrill inside that never subsides

With each step they take
Their body begins to awaken
Muscles stretching, heart pumping
The rhythm of their breath in sync

There’s something about running
That clears the mind and feeds the soul
A sense of freedom and release
As worries and doubts begin to unfold

With the road stretching out before them
The runner sets their pace
Taking on the miles with courage
Pushing through the pain and fatigue

Through winding trails and city streets
The runner’s journey unfolds
In moments of triumph and defeat
They learn the lessons of the road

For every hill they climb
And every obstacle they face
The runner grows stronger within
And finds a sense of grace

With sweat and tears on their face
And the finish line in sight
The runner sprints towards the end
With all their might

And as the crowds cheer and applaud
The runner knows what they have achieved
Not just a physical victory
But a mental and emotional one too

For running is more than just a sport
It’s a way of life, a journey of the soul
And the runner knows this truth
As they continue to chase their goals.
