To My Dearest Run ...

Dear Run,

How have you been? I've realized that we really aren't seeing each other that much anymore. Wasn't it like three months ago when we were spending 8 or 9 hours a week together? I mean, I really felt like we had a connection, but now, you're barely make an appearance in my training plan.

Seriously, Run, I'm not sure what's going on here. Only 12 miles this week? I'm used to 12 miles in a day. I think it's time for you to man up. Bike is dominating this place and you're doing nothing about it. How are you going to let the new guy come in here and steal me away for 150 miles this week while you just sit there? And don't even get me started on how you've let Swim replace you too.

I can't be the only one fighting. We both knew that my attempts to add a few miles here and there were only going to last so long. You either needed to make an appearance or realize that Bike and Swim are here to stay. And if we are being honest here, I kind of like the new guys and I'm really not missing you all that much.

So, what's it gonna be, Run? Are you going to show me some love?

Yours in endurance,
TMB

I don't think you are answering the phone when Run calls. Poor guy.

Dear TMB - I've noticed what's been going on. But I'm a firm believer that If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it dosent, then it was never meant to be. So, I'll be here waiting on your return.

Run.....

Love it! Glad you are enjoying your biking and swimming. Running will always be there for you when you're ready to go back!

Great post! And I love that "150 miles this week." Wow that's a lot of biking.

Your blog is almost like an episode of Sister wives with all your "guys." What would that make it, Brother Husbands?? heeheehee

I think Mr. Run came knocking on my door with you giving him the cold shoulder and all. I mean, last week was my highest mileage since last fall.

That is great. Let the run go and it will come back to you and then you will love it more.

Yay for biking and swimming! Thanks for the wetsuit link but I need to obsess over it for a bit longer (and I didn't see any my size.)
