Camp Chief Hector YMCA Fun Run – A Tribute to the Participants

On this day, the gray clouds wept upon the still leaves and the quiet trees,


The sky parted and a lone sliver of sunlight stabbed through the dark clouds,
A welcome smile on a cold day.
The children were laughing while their parents grinned as the gray lifted a little from the quiet forest.
The runners all bunched together as they gathered at the beginning of the Run-
as the wind sighed beside me as it went by……..
And then they were off!
The first time the runners went by, Time seemed to slow.
I saw their concentration and I felt their need.
The next time they went by, their images blurred and they flew-
as the wind sighed beside me as it went by…..
Suddenly, I was reminded of the Great Spirits of the past-
those stoic warriors who ran through the Forest as if the leaves were not there.
And the wind sighed beside me as it went by……..
