17 descended upon Mary each to run their selected distance,
Prior to the saying “let’s go,” TYA was gone in an instant.
With some of the PAX running to Three Chopt and return,
It would take a lap around Mary as a 4-miler to earn.
5 and 6 milers however, had a different route to take,
Down Iris, up Towana, and for some – a lap around a lake.
Dutch and Phonics were, without question, the ones to try and out pace
Although the remaining PAX were strong in running their own race.
Rigid-Bleeder on his bike, and TwoCan in his tights,
And Splinter with his junior-size vest that would reflect any lights.
TYA and Circle K demonstrated their intrepid nature and nerve,
As they ascended Towana and rounded the curve.
It was at that point the PAX ceased moving on its way,
as the screeching of car tires indicated a near-miss of Circle K.
As we concluded another run around Mary among the slight glimmer of light,
We were reminded to see TwoCan regarding a “plus-plus/platinum” option when swiping right.
