I went to the Team Challenge – East Bay group run last weekend… to pass out water and cheer on the runners at the turnaround. I didn’t run.
I didn’t know most of the team, but there were a few familiar faces. I found out that one of the girls I ran with last December is pregnant! She was only 8 weeks along and hadn’t made any announcements. But she told me because I don’t know anyone in her daily life. And I’m telling you because, well, you don’t either.
I miss running.
And that, honestly, kind of surprises me. We’ve had such an off and on relationship over the years. So many times I left it for the couch. Now here I sit on our *brand new couch*, longing for what I can’t have. I suppose that’s life… and as my Dad always said, “Life’s not fair.”
I always replied by saying, “But it should be, and we should do our best to make it that way.” So Dad, I will run again. It’s just going to take some time.
*Okay, it’s actually an over-sized chair. But it is new and that’s significant.
