Please welcome Holly to the Journal for this special guest post, as she makes her fantastic first attempt at writing poetry! (You can read my guest post on her blog here:

Greetings! I’m Holly, the Cleveland writer behind “Rust Belt Runner,” a blog documenting my journey with running, yoga and healthy living. As part of the Ohio Blogging Association November Blog Swap, today I am taking a stab at poetry.

While I have been a fan of the written word ever since I took my first English class in elementary school, poetry has never been my forte. I even majored in journalism and have spent my professional career writing for newspapers, websites, companies and now also my blog — but during that time I have never written a poem. Showcasing my love for running, I present you with a poem about my favorite sport.
