3 Good Things About Today's Run
|Photo Taken in the Heights Area|
- While I was running down the road at Memorial Park, I started to get off of the road when I saw two cars coming down the road and somehow I fell down - maybe I tripped on one of my dog's paws. When I stood back up, I noticed that one of the drivers had stopped and waited to see if I was okay. I thought that was really nice. We waved at each other and I ran home (half a mile).
- I have a minor hip bruise and my arm has a major road scrape. My husband was so impressed that he took a picture of my bloody arm. I can still run so I'm happy. You know you're a runner when all you care about is whether you can run or not after you fall!
- Before I fell, I ran an 11.5 mile progression run fueled by 3 dates and a few pretzels. I started out slowly while thinking that there was little chance that I could speed up later because it's still warm outside. I tried to speed up anyway and somehow I ran negative splits.
