June 2008, 50th Anniversary
 
 
Congratulations NYRR
 
Go west
if you feel depressed!
I remember a blues tune with that view.
If you believe that is true
and you are from the coast
of Denmark westernmost
just having a bicycle
and some running shoes
you can easily feel a little stuck.
I must admit
I often did!
When I was a kid!

Much later when my running career
was beginning to decline
and I could travel by a plane.
Instead of being depressed
I went west!
To run the most celebrated race that I knew.
And yes, I have done quite a few!
But now I know for sure.
It is the best thing to do.
When you are feeling blue!
