Training Mantra of the Gingerbread Girl

What I say to myself whilst I train for a charity walk dressed as a Ginga girl.

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen.

Run, run,
And I'll let you pass;
You can catch me,
I'm the gingerbread lass.

But I don't care if you're fast;
I'm slow,
'Cos I'm going the pace
That my feet can go.

You said I couldn't,
But I say "I WILL!",
Whether it's down
Or all up hill.

And you can take it
Up the big, fat shitter,
'Cos I am strong
And I'm not a quitter.

Walk, walk,
Walketty walk...

Walk, walk,
Walketty walk...

[Repeat incessantly until end of walk]

Author's Note: I'm doing my best to train for a 26 mile walk next year. I've been told I'll not manage it, and that I'll make myself sick, so this is my mantra to help me walk rhythmically and forget the pain. Innit.
