"This is Just to Say" (Ultrarunners' Edition)

Inspired by a recent This American Life piece on the famous non-apology apology poem -- This is Just to Say -- by William Carlos Williams, I had to try my hand at an ultrarunner version.

This is Just to Say

I have run
longer than
I told you
I would.

I'm sure
the kids
didn't drive you crazy
and that you didn't have
anything you wanted to do.

Forgive me
the sun was
so nice and
my legs so good.

Beautiful. I caught that TAL segment as well, and I quite enjoyed it. This poem makes me smile. Thanks!
