I like your poems when they are somewhat enigmatic, as this one is! Who passed you? Did they pass you as in you passed a test of some kind, or did they pass you while you were out for a jog? Double meanings double the fun! One comment, to go with the flow, pun could be worked in with "on the run" in the final line, though I am not sure how you might do this (and would rather not offer suggestions anyway, since, if you agree, you will come up with something a lot better than I would).

Later when I go

may match up
pun with fun
