Sunday, December 02, 2012

So I was doing my usual Sunday morning run before church. I was a little over 3 miles in, happy that it was the first Sunday of Advent, looking forward to the Hanging of the Greens to decorate the church after the service...

BOOM! I tripped on the sidewalk, scraping both knees, my hands and my face. Here's the worst of it:

Fortunately, the closest hospital wasn't too far, so I was able to walk the distance, blood flowing down my legs and face the whole way. I was lucky: my head CT scan came out negative, and the only damage was superficial.

So I walked to where my car was parked about a mile away, drove home and had lunch...only to head to the gym later in the day and finish my run to the tune of another 3.2 miles. I may have lost the battle, but I REFUSE to lose the war! :)

Hope all of yas had a safer Sunday than I did!

    Ouch! Well done for going again after that, I'd probably curl up under the duvet all day.

    Holy Moly, that was quite a fall! Glad you didn't hurt yourself too badly, and your willpower is incredible to finish your run later.

    Sorry about the injuries, they look painful!
But I'm glad you were not seriously hurt.
That's probably because you are fit and your body is able to defend itself better. emoticon

    Ouch, that's a nasty looking scrape, but obviously not enough to stop a real runner. What a trooper.
