'I am a Cleobury Runner'

I am a Cleobury Runner
Out running in the rain
Some think I am a hero
Some think I am insane
After long days in the office
Hours on the motorway
I know that there is something
To finish off my day
I grab my grubby trainers
In ice and snow and gale
Stick on my trusty headtorch
And head out on the trail
My feet soon find a rhythm
The road drops up and down
I leave my worries and my troubles
On the pavements around town
There are evenings when I falter
When my run plan makes me curse
There are evenings where i'm better
And many where I'm worse
But I am a Cleobury Runner
And when I want to quit
I lift my feet up higher
And I mutter "Don't be Shit"
