Today, Victoria is taking over the blog and writing about her long distance relationship with her boyfriend Stan. You may remember Victoria from her previous guest post, We Know: If It Hurts, It Can Heal…Because We Run.
It was the perfect scenario. I had just moved to Windsor, Ontario to begin law school and an orientation event was being held at a local bar so first year students could have an opportunity to mingle with upper years. While I tend to be naturally introverted, I pulled on my best casual outfit, planted a smile on my face, and begrudgingly headed out the door to meet my classmates. When I arrived at the bar, I expected to make casual conversation with a few people before heading back to my apartment. What I got instead was the very beginning of the biggest emotional rollercoaster of my life: a long distance relationship, stretching across the entire Province of Ontario.
