Running: (Just Like) Starting Over

We had a strong relationship: committed, devoted, loving. We were inseparable. But then we grew apart. At first, I thought it would be just a little break while I spent time at yoga, recovering from my last marathon. Just when we were about to rekindle the romance, however, I got hit by the flu. My running shoes collected dust, ignored and unloved.

But now marathon training has started again. Alas, that neglect means that all my speed, all my endurance has disappeared. Still, I’m renewing my vows to my running shoes – every pair of them. It’s just like starting over.

(In case you haven’t noticed, I wear Saucony shoes. Lots of them.)
