A Note to My Nikes

Dear Running Shoes,

I'm sorry that I've neglected you.  At this point in my pregnancy, I can't bend over to tie you up, and even if I could... I probably wouldn't.  My swollen feet and aching back beg me to lay on the couch as soon as I walk in the door from work.  This baby sure does take up a LOT of room these days.  But I'm trying not to complain. 

I hope you'll forgive me after Christmas, when I come crawling back to you.  I've already signed us up for 2 half marathons in the spring and I'm looking forward to pounding the pavement with you again.

In the mean time, I'm growing a small person and it takes all of my energy.  But I know that you'll be waiting for me.  You'll always be waiting for me, won't you?

I have no doubt that your shoes will welcome you back with open laces! You rock woman!

I think your shoes will forgive you and welcome you with open soles upon you return :).

Growing a baby is tough work. Your shoes will be happy to have you back, no matter how long it takes.

Hahaha. This is awesome.

Running will always take you back. Always.
