The 20 miler

J Siragusa
This post was updated on .
Now that I have been doing "real" training and not just "virtual" training, I get the 20 miler love/hate thing.  So on the occasion of my first every 20 mile (last sunday) here it is.  



The 20 Miler by John Siragusa
(Parody of "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash)

Marathons are a funny thing
You sign up to get the bling
Friends say you never tire
Even on the 20 miler

CHORUS:
The plan calls for a 20 miler
The legs go round, round, round
And the miles go higher

And my legs Burn, Burn, Burn
The 20 miler
The 20 miler

The paint creek trail is where we meet
In the creek we soak our feet
The plan at first was mild
Oh, But The miles just piled

CHORUS
The plan calls for a 20 miler
The legs go round, round, round
And the miles go higher
And my legs Burn, Burn, Burn
The 20 miler
The 20 miler

18 weeks seemed like a fling
by week 10, no such thing
hills, just make you tire
by mile 18, I’m a crier

Now running a second 20 miler
I Went miles(miles), miles(miles), Miles(miles)
And the feet, the just tired, tired, tired,

Looking forward to the taper miles,
Where the miles go Down(down), Down(down), Down(down)
But for now, the 20 miler, the 20 miler, the 20 miler

And It Burns
OoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooYaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


Original Version

Love Is A Burning Thing
And It Makes A Fiery Ring
Bound By Wild Desire
I Fell Into A Ring Of Fire

CHORUS:
I Fell Into A Burning Ring Of Fire
I Went Down, Down, Down
And The Flames Went Higher

And It Burns, Burns, Burns
The Ring Of Fire
The Ring Of Fire

The Taste Of Love Is Sweet
When Hearts Like Ours Meet
I Fell For You Like A Child
Oh,But The Fire Went Wild

CHORUS
I Fell Into A Burning Ring Of Fire
I Went Down, Down, Down
And The Flames Went Higher
And It Burns, Burns, Burns
The Ring Of Fire
The Ring Of Fire

Love Is A Burning Thing
And It Makes A Fiery Ring
Bound By Wild Desire
I Fell Into A Ring Of Fire

I Fell Into A Burning Ring Of Fire
I Went Down(down), Down(down), Down(down)
And The Flames Went Higher Higher Higher

I Fell Into A Burning Ring Of Fire
I Went Down(down), Down(down), Down(down)
And The Flames Went Higher Higher Higher

And It Burns
OoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooYaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

It was a real treat to have John sing this for me during our 20 miler yesterday
