Fasting Crowns at the 5K

Our church is involved in running a community 5K on May 4. As such, each Sunday morning at church the race director – Greg – urges us all to participate in a practice run right after lunch. Being Southerners, this can be difficult as well as painful. Usually we show up and either run or walk. Using the song “Who Am I” by Casting Crowns, I wrote this running ditty to Greg (with many apologies to Casting Crowns).
Who Am I?

I am a runner quickly breathing
Up today and down tomorrow
A cramp tossed in the stride
… A gasp upon the wind
Oh, Greg, please hear me when I’m calling
Please catch me when I’m falling
And drag me home again
I run for you
Ouou Ouou Ououuuuuuu
I run for youououuuuuuu!

When shall I breathe?
When shall I breathe?
I run for youououuuuuuu!
I run for youououuuuuuu!

(Previously recorded by Fasting Crowns, a group dedicated to 5K “Couch to ER” runs for church and community)

And the race director was just as witty and penned this response:
  • Who am I, that the eyes that see my app
    Would look at me and smile
    And say take another lap, oooo oohh
    Who am I, that the one that makes me run
    In the rain, the snow, and sun
    Is strange to call it fun

    Not because I think it’s fun
    But because he makes me run
    Not because I’m nimble and quick
    But because he’s a deranged lunatic, iiiiiiicccccccc

    Keep Running! : )
