Dear 3 Mile Run,

I'm sorry.

I took you for granted for so long.  I know, back in the day, when I thought I was some hot shot half  marathon runner I treated you poorly.  I stepped right over you with no regard on the way to some other more impressive mile number. 

Today, I remembered how important you are.  Today I got back to my roots. 

After months of not running and now weeks of chiropractor treatment I'm finding my way back to that deep satisfaction that running can bring. 

Today Three Miler, you were the goal, you were the highlight and I felt proud standing in your spotlight.

Today I appreciate you and feel proud to be in your presence.  

I hope you can forgive me for being so ungrateful and we can continue our relationship. I promise to see you for all that you are and appreciate your stability and your foundation. 

I'm hoping to get back to crossing that half marathon tape again some day but I promise to always honor you and your place in that journey.

Run the first mile with your legs, the second mile with your mind, and the third mile with your heart.”
