Whilst out running alone 12 months ago
Struggling to complete 3 miles
A group of runners appeared by the canal
Full of laughter and smiles

They belonged to a running club called Stoke FIT
Who meet for a run twice a week
“Everyone’s welcome, come join us !” they said
So that’s what I did, the following week

Everyone made me feel welome
The support and encourgagement was great
I soon managed to run faster and further
And began to enter the odd race

What made me run in the first place ?
To complete the Potter’s Arf
Well, the time is here, the day has arrived
It’s time to make my way to the start

So if you’re around on Sunday
Then go and check out the race
I’d love to see you, cheering me on
With a smile on your friendly face !
