Dear Running - a letter

Dear Running,

I don't even know if I am going to give this letter to you, but I'm so angry I had to write down my feelings. So, what's your problem? Seriously. Friday you let me run almost 5 miles of pure bliss. You made me like you again. Then Saturday, you turn on me. You were miserable and didn't even let me go 2 miles.

You need to make a choice. Are you going to be with me or against me? I can't handle this wishy washy bull$hit anymore. I want to like you again. At one point, I was totally obsessed with you. Now I do anything I can to avoid you.

Thanks to you, I did not lose a freakin' pound this week for the H.W.C. I had to post on the forum that the scale didn't budge. Thanks alot for that. You could have been helpful, but NOOOOOOOOOOO.

That's all I have to say to you right now so I don't say something I don't mean. Shape up or ship out.

POM, we've all felt this way about running before, I'm positive! Sometimes I have my 'Forrest Gump Days' where I can RUN AND RUN AND RUN AND RUN FOREVER...and other days...yeah, I can barely manage to crank out a couple of easy miles.

This sport... I tell ya... I think we all like it because it almost never ceases to be challenging, but on those RARE occasions where it feels easy...Yeah, those are pretty freakin' fantastic.

I can sooo relate to that exact same letter! I avoided running for 2 months. Saturdays run was horrible, whereas yesterdays' wasn't that bad. It's such a love/hate relationship, I know.

Hopefully it will all come together for you! After all, you're still considering RnR AZ right? (hint, hint)

I totally feel your pain, sister. I too need to have a long talk with running, but postmark the letter to "My old-lady knees".

How is your hip feeling?
