Westbrook Snowshoe Race


WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER Road Race

OUT past the streets
Off of the asphalt
CAN'T run the same old route THIS TIME
WE ARE the ‘Shoers
THE first GENERATION
WE ARE all tired of that grind
No one even thinks we’re all that strange
Running out into the woods ‘til no street lights remain

WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER Road Race
WE DON'T NEED TO KNOW THE mile splits
ALL WE WANT are snowy trails at
Westbrook DOME

LOOKING FOR trails 
WE CAN just play ON
SOMETHING BETTER to give this long winter a lift
Snow and exertion
Come try out our version
Without snowshoes you’d be headfirst in a drift
No one even thinks you’re all that strange
Running out into the woods ‘til no street lights remain

ALL THE ‘Shoers SAY
WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER Road Race
WE DON'T NEED TO KNOW THE mile splits
ALL WE WANT are snowy trails at
Westbrook DOME

SO WHAT DO WE DO WITH OUR time
WE LEAVE ONLY A trace
When we loop back to the start
With a quickening pace
Or maybe just our heart rate

WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER Road Race
WE DON'T NEED TO KNOW THE mile splits
ALL WE WANT are snowy trails at
Westbrook DOME

~ Tina 'Deep Cleat' Turner

Oh I love Tina 'Deep Cleat' Turner's poetry it is truly awesome.
I think the photos capture the event and the excitement of being there perfectly, I wish I had of been there.. I cannot wait to see you all at the Red Barn. It is going to be awesome with all this snow. Great job everyone.
