I can not begin to tell you how much these past 1000+ miles have meant to me. You have carried me throughall the training for a marathon, a 10k, a half marathon, several 5 ks and all but 12 miles of my ultra training. Where would I be without you?
But I have seen that you have taken notice to that red box beside my bed. I don't want there to be any lies between us. We have come to far for that.
There is someone else. There I've said it.
We both knew this day would come. A day when I would have to allow you to rest after having helped me for so long.
I am sure that we will still have our days together but as I start to prepare for my next adventure, I have to do what is best for both of us. I know you wouldn't want to see me injured. And I couldn't bear to see you completely distroyed; riddled with holes.
It's not you it's me. I hope we can still be friends.
Yours in running,
