Fit Tip #23

August 8, 2009

Today my mind was racing

Faster than my feet could spin

While cycling from Virginia

To a park in Washington

Then I saw a labyrinth

A circle on the ground

(Unlike a maze where you get lost
A labyrinth: You’re found)

I laid my bike upon the grass

To give the walk a try

Sure enough my racing mind

Grew quieter. I sighed

The moral here

We need to move

A-racing we do go

Fitness comes from moving fast

But peace requires slow.

Fit Tip #22

August 7, 2009

Your body’s going to go to pot
Just ask your oldest friends
I know this isn’t real good news
Or news at all: Life ends.
So what’s the point? What can you do
‘Tween now and your last breath?
WORK OUT. Each step puts distance
‘Tween you and illness, death.
(Ok, this morning’s message
Is not one filled with cheer
It’s hopeful, though, and loving too:
I want you strong. And here.)
