A Letter to My IT Band

29 Apr

Dear IT Band,

I ask you to please quit playing games with my heart. One day (Thursday) we’re all buddy buddy and I think we’re getting along just fine and we might just have a beautiful friendship after all and then two days later (Saturday) you’re being a bitch again.

I prefer the good ol’ days when we used to run the streets in glee. When together we would conquer our mileage, one step at a time. The days when we would skip off into the sunset laughing. Where did those days go? How do we go back to that?

I hope that we can work out whatever it is that is causing this tension between us. I miss us.

Best Regards,

Ice that sucker every day, a couple times a day, and get your stretch on and you may just be ok. Take some yoga classes. And I never recommend that because I hate yoga. But I bet it would help. I want to read a happy race review! šŸ™‚
    P.S. I forgot to tell you Thursday, but I covet your hair. Weird? Perhaps.

      Well damn… I may be limping across that finish line, but my hair will look good! Thanks, I go to Trish at Alchemy and love her!

      I shall do all that you’ve instructed. You are very, very wise.
