(with apologies to Gloria Gaynor)
At first I was afraid, I was petrified,
I spent years thinking I couldn’t go without you at my side
I charged you before each run so I could see what I had done
Now Garmin’s hacked and there’ s no app….
Hacked when my friends and I had planned to run a virtual race
Of all the days to happen, this was not the right time or place
If I had known that this would be, I would have picked another date
What will I do? How can I race?
Will I survive? Oh my…..
Will my watch record my times? And will it show my pace?
And will I see my splits? Oh, when will this be fixed?
How can I race? How can I race?
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart,
Uploading results to Strava was, oh, so very hard,
If no one sees my times, does it mean I didn’t run?
Where are my likes? And what are my bragging rights?
Where is that fix? What will I do?
I guess I’ll run again; I’ll bravely run out that front door.
Garmin may be offline for another day or more
But it will be back and I’ll survive….
