A fond farewell to Nike+

Dear Nike+,

It's been awhile since the last time we went for a run. I hope you're enjoying your new home with my sister. I think you'll have fun in Florida. We've done a lot together. 3 marathons, 4 half marathons, and a whole bunch of 5k & 10ks. We've done a lot over 2 1/2 years. Sometimes you didn't tell me the truth. Sometimes you didn't work like you were suppose to. Maybe you wanted me to feel good about my pace and how far I was running. We've had ups and downs, but now I have a new friend. I hate to say that I'm running even better with my garmin watch Clyde, but I wouldn't be able to move ahead if you hadn't gotten me in such good shape. I enjoyed the challenges, and the graphs. It's time to move on. Despite the fact that I enjoy seeing the mileage we've done together, it's time to move on. So thanks for the good memories, and great runs. I'll never forget them.

Aww, goodbye little fella. It's amazing what we become attached to, isn't it? Lovely post.

I sometimes feel that way about a great pair of running shoes -- especially if I wore them to a fun event. I try to send them in to be recycled into some else or to a place that sends them to Africa. I like thinking some gent a half a world away that is also size 12 is having some adventures.

Hey -- I'm looking forward to seeing you soon I hope.....
