B-mama and Red are just bettin'
Who will run fast
and not come in last
Guaranteed we'll surely be sweatin'
But who really has what it takes
To compete without pride or mistakes?
A prize she will win
In this race of has-beens
To conquer a test of high stakes
The BC crowd will give cheer
From the sidelines others might jeer
As they see what transpires
When the gun quickly fires
Three mamas compete without fear
Mary Alice will humble us soundly
At her full term status, so roundly
She'll glide through the miles
Beaming with smiles
Thoughts of six wee babes so profoundly
And don't forget Mr. MA
Who will be most impressive that day
He's lost 30 pounds
While doing his rounds
The half marathon is his foray.
While we wish everyone could be here
From Germany to Texas, so dear
We're together by Grace
Running life's race
God's blessings undoubtedly clear.
Good Luck to all of our Philadelphia Half-Marathon and 8K participants!!!!
