I feel my lungs burn, a fire starting in my stomach that threatens to swallow me whole. 
Lap fifty-seven, the announcer says.
I need to keep going.
I need to keep going.

My legs are no longer a part of me; I can't feel anything.  I'm a machine who can't be stopped.
Lap fifty-eight
I need to keep going.
I need to keep going.

I can't breathe.  
I can't feel.
I can't stop.
Because my legs keep running
And my heart keeps thumping
And my lungs keep burning

And I'm so alive...
 
For those who don't know me, I love jogging.  This is what my thoughts would be if I kerplunked them on paper while I was jogging.  Kerplunked is a fun word. :P

    Dude, this is awesome. I love this. Great job throwing up through thoughts into the paper (or would it be screen, IDK). Throwing up your thoughts into a page is an expression my sister uses she she jots down her ideas.

    So you were wondering how to link something. I have the answer! XD
    Anyway, go to your Start Writing or whatever thingy and then bring up someone's profile or your own and go to their entries. When you find the piece you want to link, don't click on the title or anything, just highlight it, copy and paste it. I hope that helps at least enough to get you started!
