Christmas Morning Birthday Run by Bobby Aswell

Today's post is brought to you by Cornelius, NC-based runner Bobby Aswell, who happens to share his birthday with baby Jesus.  Happy birthday!

After 4 hours of gift unwrapping and other Christmas Day fun
It was time to get dressed for my annual birthday run

With a piece of birthday cake in my belly I looked out the door
The weather looked dismal, I didn’t want to see any more

The rain was coming down so hard I could barely see
And the wind was blowing 20 to 25 mph easily

Out the door I went for an 8 mile run
Knowing that it was going to be a very memorable one

5 miles in and I had to go really bad
When I looked up and saw a porta-jon and man was I glad

Only 3 miles to go and I’d be finished with my run
Then I’d be looking forward to continuing my Christmas Day Birthday fun

So, have a Merry Christmas and a joyous day
And be thankful for what you have on this very special day

Bobby Aswell
