Fiction: Steam

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Patricia told her mom she’d like to run the Boston marathon, mother wasn’t sure Pat was trained enough, even though she qualified for the marathon.

Mom was   one  of those people who’d never think of discouraging her kid.

Mother and daughter reached  Boston two days before the marathon, Patricia was confident she’d be able to do well.

On the day of the marathon she received a very discouraging letter, it was from her best friend Tracy, she wrote, it was a very difficult course, she doubts Pat will be able to complete it.

Patricia read the letter several times, she could not believe Tracy would discourage her, she tried to ignore the contents of the letter, she started the run , she’d reached halfway, when she felt terrible cramps, she began to limp, finally a gust of wind blew her off course she fell down, she did not have enough strength to continue!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this rather sad post. Patricia may, however, regroup, retrain, and return another day to run the course!

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • Dear Robert,
      I don’t think she’ll give up as you said she’ll retrain and regroup.
      It’s what we all should do, try harder the next time.
      Thank you Robert for your comment. 🙂
