ode to a toe

ode to a toe

O little toes upon my feet

the pavement in my sneakers meet

pushed and shoved, a little squeezed

going further than ever believed.

toe number two on my right foot

your seeming lately a little off-put

some throbbing pain is settling in

i’m worried something’s going on with ‘im.

ive been warned that your nail just might turn black

then fall off, and start to grow back

a price to pay for the marathon,

i’m getting prepared for the day your gone.

1 -2- 3, counting up to 10

losing a toenail is a matter of when

til then, i’ll paint you and treat you well

cuz heck, runners think the loss is sexy as hell!  LOL

Ciao for now…..Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
