Goodbye, Half-Marathon Training!

Dear Half-Marathon Training,

It's time to say goodbye. I finished you this morning with a slow, easy two-mile run. Now it's time to rest until Saturday's race.

You have been good to me. No toenails turned black or fell off. You only gave me one blister throughout training. I'm stronger and fitter than ever before. I'm in a pant size I vaguely remember from high school. Through you, I've bonded with old friends and forged strong new friendships.

For the first time in my life, I feel a little like an athlete, and I owe it all to you.

I'll miss you. See you again in August. Take care.

Good luck on Saturday!!!

You ARE an athlete! Congratulations on a great training run (and on the pant-size!) and best of luck on Saturday. Savour that finish line!
