This is how I view running now:
That ex-boyfriend (running) that you just broke up with. You ended things on somewhat good terms, but you still feel bitter about the break up.
You see that ex-boyfriend in the park, having a great time without you.
You see that ex-boyfriend with other people (other runners), hanging out without a care in the world.
You see your ex-boyfriend’s best friends in a clothing store (running clothes), they’re nice to you but you know you can’t still be friends with them.
You see your ex-boyfriend with a new girlfriend and all you want to do is break her legs.
One day, you hope to get back with that ex-boyfriend. You’d rather him not forget about you. You had a lot of good times together, not everything was perfect, but you made each other happy. The only thing standing in the way was your bum hip and he resented you for it…
