I have missed you dearly. You were my best friend for so long. My confidant. My go to. Then, I fell. Had a hidden tear. For two years I abandoned you until I could take it no more. Surgery fixed the tear and we started being friends again. Not best friends.... maybe acquaintances. We had a pretty good stretch but then.... another setback. A tweak of my knee sent me back to the elliptical, bike, and other machines that I still detest to this day. After a few cartilage injections the pain remains, but I don't care anymore. I NEED YOU!
Two days in a row you and I have been reconnecting. Today I tasted our friendship again. I was lost in the cadence of my feet hitting the pavement. The breath that was coming in my nose and out of my mouth in a very familiar pattern. I could have been lost in you forever but we stopped our euphoria at 4 miles because grass needed to be cut. :)
I hope our time apart is not as long as it's been in the past. I hope to revisit you every 2 to 3 times a week.
Your forever, faithful friend,
