Pegasus 39 Retirement Ceremony

Service details

Start date: 21-May-2022

End date: 06-July-2023

Distance covered: 1510 km

Dear Nike Pegasus 39,

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional service you have provided. Since the day you became a part of my running journey, the occurrence of running injuries has become a thing of the past. Prior to your arrival, I used to suffer from a different injury every other day - knee pain one day, calf muscle strain the next, and ankle pain thereafter. There were countless occasions when I had to cut my runs short due to these injuries. At some point, I even began to question whether running was the right activity for me.

However, all thanks to you, I have experienced injury-free running and regained my confidence as a runner. Your support has brought stability to my running routine, as I no longer have to worry about being sidelined by injuries. I am sincerely grateful for this.

I must commend the remarkable cushioning you provided, particularly when I was 15 kg heavier than my current weight. Without your cushioning and stability, I would not have been able to improve my pace from 10 minutes per kilometre to 6 minutes per kilometre (race time). Your unwavering support enabled me to complete four 10 km races and two half marathons, and for that, I am immensely thankful. Whether it was road runs, trail runs, hill runs, tempo runs, or the daily easy runs, you were there for me, and I truly appreciate it.

After your invaluable service of 1500 km, accompanying me on my weight loss journey from 87 kg to 72 kg, it is undoubtedly a difficult decision to part ways. I am aware that you must feel a similar attachment to me. Considering your dedication to serving, I would like to make a request: would you kindly join me on my recently embarked cycling journey? I have witnessed your excellence in cycling as well, and I am confident that you will enjoy cycling alongside me. I hope you will accept my offer and spend some more time with me before your well-deserved retirement.

Once again, thank you, dear Nike Pegasus 39, for everything you have done.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Peri
