Dear Running Shoes

Dear Running Shoes,

I am so sorry that I have neglected you over the past week, I received bad news from home, and have been struggling to find motivation. I hope that you enjoyed your short run in Victoria last weekend, over the icy paths, you were able to keep me from slipping over, and for that I am forever grateful. I hope that you are not too jealous about the new joggers that I have brought. I promise that I will continue to take you on runs, whilst I am breaking the "others" in. I want to thank you for the journey that you have taken me on. The two full marathons, half marathon, 2 10km road races and countless hours of training. You have held up strong and have carried me to many personal victories. I will put you on tomorrow and take you for a nice run around the lake, so you get to see it for perhaps the last time in your career. Chin up though, I will make sure that I donate you to charity at the BMO Vancouver Marathon, so that you will go to someone in need, so that you can give them the joy that you gave me. There will never be another pair like you.

Love me xo


  1. :) Love the idea of donating shoes - I have several pairs that need to go in the donation bin. Hope your bad news wasn't too terrible.

  2. Hi Terri,
    My parents house flooded in the Brisbane floods, they lost almost everything. It is just hard being on the other side of the world not being able to help and offer comfort!
