It almost never works out.... ever.
I tried to be friends with the one girl I have ever actually loved and shown such affection towards, and it fell straight into the ground. At first you'll be completely fine with it. You'll see each other a few times, start talking about what you've done, fun and bad... then you'll start talking about each other's past moments spent together. It escalates from there to starting to act upon these in either several different ways; Jealousy, resentment, embarrassment, hatred, or the most unexpected possible... a little joyful. Almost always there will be jealousy and resentment.
Since you two live such a far distance and its nothing physical and cannot see actual emotion; casually talk to her. Don't make it anything more than what it is. Ex's are ex's for a reason, and never get it confused. It will remain that way, and the only way it will not be any different is if you and her put an UNBELIEVABLE amount of effort into entwining your future, along with your present. To me, its not worth the effort at all what so ever.
Also, I kinda get the vibe in which you are hoping for your two future to stay if you are thinking about pursuing her again, with such great distance, and that can be a bad thing. Knowing when to let go isn't giving up, it isn't being rude or selfish... its knowing when and what is best for the both of your lives, not just yours.
