    I need english help please

    I am having problems with figuring out which one of these sentences is a run on sentence:
    A. I went home and ate and ate.
    B. Before lunch, I played volleyball; after lunch, I played again.
    C. I thought about what he'd said soon I realized he was right.
    D. You and I and the whole team will go.

    I think it is C, can you please help?

    You are right. It should be one of the following:
    a)I thought about what he'd said, and soon I realized he was right.
    b)I thought about what he'd said; soon I realized he was right.
    c I thought about what he'd said. Soon I realized he was right.

    I prefer a) because it flows better.
