Friday Haikus: Post-Marathon Edition

So much has changed since my post on Wednesday: I can now walk down stairs with a close-to-normal gate and I can sit and stand without needing to hold onto an armrest.  One thing that hasn't changed? I'm still working on that pesky race report. While you wait on pins and needles to hear about my race in excruciating fascinating detail, enjoy this fresh batch of post-marathon haikus.

  Crossing the Finish

  This is terrible
  I hate marathons; finished--
  Can't wait for next one

  Post-Race Glow

  Medal on my neck,
  Boston jacket on my back,
  Feeling like a star

  Post-Race Low

  Hobbling down stairs,
  Ouch! Bending down is a chore,
  Recovery sucks


  1. Ha, I hear you! I think tomorrow I will go on my first run after Boston... hopefully my legs are finally ready for it. Can't wait to read your race recap!
