It's been a long time, hasn't it? It was kind of awkward meeting you today. That familiar awkwardness that comes from meeting an old flame. It took me a few minutes to feel that rhythm we used to have. We haven't seen each other in so long. I can't even remember the last time. You understand why I stayed away don't you? The not feeling well. The reason - rather reasons - I didn't feel well. The giant stomach that grew three tiny things. All legitimate reasons. But it doesn't mean I didn't miss you. It doesn't mean I didn't think about you. I even dreamed about you once. That's right. It was like we were back at Ragnar, the week before I had to give you up for a while. I was lacing up my shoes. Tying back my hair. Just about to stretch a little... Then I woke up. I was large and swollen and hungry. Not a runner, but pregnant.
But today wasn't a dream! You were real. You made my heart beat faster. You made my blood move. I love how you make my blood move. I forgot how addicted I was to you and that feeling.
I missed you running. But I'm glad we found each other again. I'll try not to stay away so long next time. We belong together.
