Everyone gathers
To run the race
Each one hoping
They’ll set a good pace

The chance for glory
Is the vast motivation
Determined faces
Are a familiar indication

Each runner has trained
In hopes of a win
And as they near the finish line
Fans holler and grin

The race isn’t easy
The path is steep
And quite a few participants
Begin to creep

A sudden gust of wind
Encourages each athlete
Pushing them along
The sun beaten concrete

Eventually the end
Draws to a close
For the lucky winner
Now finally shows

There’s still so many others
Following behind
Yet this fortunate runner
Has been given peace of mind

For winning the race
Is the ultimate reward
An honor very few
Have ever adorned
