Dear running….

First things first, I totally forgot to announce the winner of my giveaway yesterday. So onto the good news….the winner is the running lawyer! Congratulations! Please send me an email at bestthingislove [@] gmail [.] com.



Dear running,

For the past five solids months, we have met 3-4 times per week without fail. You have shown me that I am stronger than I could ever imagine and yet you never fail to show me that I still have a long way to go. You have helped me to lose those last pounds and make my legs leaner. You have made me sweat, made me hurt and made me wonder why the hell I keep coming back to you! There is something I have to tell you though…as much as I love you and like you being in my life, I have to take a little break from you.

Sorry running, but I am going to cheat on you with cycling and swimming for a couple of weeks. I promise I will still visit you, but it might just not be as much.

Let’s make a deal….if I come back to you and still give you love while loving cycling and swimming, will you please let me come back to you where we left off? I might even spend extra time foam rolling and stretching if you promise to make my return to you easy.

Love you forever and always!



  1. Justin will be so sad we didn't win! :(
    Love your letter!

  2. Yeah!! You just made my day!!!! So happy to have won this for our new home!!!

    Love the letter to running. I need to do one myself apologizing for being away for too long. Good luck with the Tri preparation!

  3. Haha love the letter! The cross-training will be SO GOOD for you and make you an even stronger runner than before!!

  4. Um, that letter to running just made me happy. Happy Tuesday, friend!

  5. Haha, I'm sure running will welcome you back with open arms!

  6. Haha I love this letter to running! Good job getting psyched up to cross train for your upcoming triathlon, it will be great!

  7. Ha, love your letter to running! I think it will be goodd to take a bit of a break and do some other things. Cross training will be good for you! Good luck with tri-training!

  8. Aww I totally know what you mean about needing a break from running. I do that periodically too. I'll have a month where I only run 15 miles or so. I think it is a good thing to take a break every once in a while! It helps prevent getting burned out! It sounds like you have some fun things planned for your running hiatus! I can't wait to hear about your new adventures.

  9. Enjoy your break from running and have fun cross training! I'm sure running will understand. :)
