When legs give out and arms won’t swing
I know one thing for sure:
my mind will be my everything
and I’ll be able to endure.
The pain will try to stop me as
discomfort rears up in great scale
But all I have to do right then
is just move forward on the trail.
What’s between my ears today
pushes me to reach tomorrow –
my mind will get me through what’s tough —
and my body knows to follow.
So take on the ultra marathon
and bring your greatest tool:
a sharpened mind, a focused head
and the stubbornness of a mule.
