A Message to My Ankles

I’m sorry you’re still not feeling great since the marathon. But training has started and I don’t like postponing or delaying our routine. We have five months until we start running with the team. Think about how much improvement we can earn before then!

How cool will it be to show up super fit at the first team run? What will Coach Jim and April think when I come in before at least a few of the other runners??? How awesome will it be to already have my ‘hill’ legs before the coaches run us up Ratcliff and Bishop? How utterly satisfying to clear the courses consistently sub- 13:00!

And see, I can’t do any of this without your cooperation. So, I need to let you know, if you don’t respond quickly to rehab and get on board, I’m kicking you off the team. We’ll run this thing without you.

You want to stay home while the rest of us go out and push our limits, gain strength and burn hills that used to burn us? You really want to miss all that? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

See you on the road!

Word to the wise (Jill's ankles): You guys better listen. You probably don't know her like I do. She's serious. She'll run without you and never look back. And how would that make you look? Watch it, ankles!

Maybe they are holding out for a new pair of shoes. Hope they shape up soon.
