Born to Run

Just before I headed out for my morning run I received a news alert from CNN that Barbaro had been euthanized
Bravely, I scanned through Barbaros photo album at Sports Illustrated. Frozen moments in time of x-rays showing images of too many screws and plates setting a horse's leg, IV lines dangling from a sleek neck, and cloth slings holding a sculpted horse upright .
His injury was too cruel. Born/bred to run - this incredible animal was at last set free.
Ran my last mile just for Barbaro...

final odyssey

ears turn to his gate
