One Forty Point Six

Woke myself to run
Tracking you every second
In support and solidarity
So cheerily I, donned
The Ironman 70.3 tee

As you race, let the elements
Be ever your fire
In all moments–
Smooth or tightwire

Flow like water
Hear its whisper
Be strong like earth
It molded you from birth
Fly like the wind
Feel it comfort
your face, your skin

Clear, blithe skies
Your guide and usher
Bring forth big smiles
Come intense heat or wet weather

Endure the pain
You are your own companion
Yet trust you’re fain
To champion

To wholly finish
One forty point six
