That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of the town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since run this far, maybe I’d just run across the great state of Alabama. And that’s what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on goin’. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on goin’. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on goin’.-Forrest
