In the blogging world
there many different choices,
lots of different sites
full of quite distinctive voices.
But if I'm forced to read just one,
yes, that's right, only one
You'd better believe that blog will be
Shut Up and Run!
Ol' Beth does well to keep it real
from sunup to sundown
and when it comes to running stuff
she doesn't mess around.
She tells it like it is
which sometimes isn't pretty
in fact it can be down right gross and
often times quite sh*tty.
Sometimes she can be brash
and even a little crude
She's not afraid to call you out
and often times be rude.
Yet still each day I check her out
to see what she will write
and more than once I've read her posts
to my husband late at night.
She makes me laugh, she's made me cry
She blogs with full emotion
Towards running and her family,
She gives complete devotion.
From her three legged dog with just one eye
to running times with Dean
There is no question in my mind
this lady is the queen.
She even has a bobble head
made completely just for her.
That alone gives me solid reason
to be her humble stalker.
A bit ago she broke her hip
I know, can you say ouch?!
But with pole dancing and swimming
She's hardly moping on the couch.
Nope she's still busy writing
and keepin' us all in check
Doing more than most do
even with her fractured femoral neck.
I read her posts, each daily
they always bring me smiles
and often times I think of her
when running on for miles.
SUAR keeps me going
and definitely keeps me inspired
And if there's one thing that is for sure
Of her blog, I'll never be tired.
