Nate and I ran in a race the other day….
It was a fund-raiser for his school.
It made me think of this song.
We ran in the non-competitive division….and, because our part of the race was scheduled for the very end of the competition and….we were pretty slow, everyone was heading out when we crossed the finish line.
But…we had a blast running around in the woods and jumping over obstacles and riding our bikes.
I thought of this song because there were a lot of “greyhound” mommies and daddies at the race.
I don’t know if they all fit the topic of this song or not.
Being in shape doesn’t automatically mean that you aren’t empathetic.
Everybody isn’t like a Si Kahn song.
But….maybe some of them were.
It’s hard to say.
Nate and I ran to be together….and to have fun….with each other.
I wonder if the ones who “ran to win” can say the same?
I hope so.
