Our love developed over time, when I was not really paying attention. We liked to meet and run together and I thought you were really nice. Our idea of fun seemed to be to find a new race to go to, one with relly cool medals. I really did not think much of us beyond that, I was preoccupied with training and trying to juggle life.
Over time things changed a bit. We started to talk more about life, and less about running. I started to see you more as a friend and less as just a runnning buddy. It was strange to me at first, I almost tried to pass off those feelings. I did not understand what it all meant, all I knew was I liked being around you and the more time we spent togeether, the more I wanted to get to know you better.
Then one day it happened, I looked up and realized that I had fallen in love with you. I remember thinking to myself how terrified I was because I did not want to lose a friend, I did not think you shared the same feelings I did. I tried to send you some clues, tried to get you to realize how I felt. Slowly, you started to put all the pieces of my puzzle together.
On a day I will never forget, you took my hand and told me how you felt, at that very moment I felt a huge overwhelming feeling of relief and hapiness. I knew from that moment on that nothing would ever be the same, in a good way.
Since that day, my life has been filled with happiness and joy. You are my partner, my lover, and my best friend. I am the luckiest girl in the entire world. No matter what is going on in my life you are supportive in every way possible. You never fail to bring a smile to my lips even on my darkest days.
So today, I want to thank you for being my rock, and the best thing that has ever happened to me. We started running together, and now we share a beautiful life together, I could not ask for much more than that.
Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite running partner, and to my person.
