Our run started out like usual, except we could see some storm damage to our trail from hurricane Sandy. It was nothing much, but we could see how parts of the trail were previously flood and the trail was now leaf covered. We were about one mile into the run when all the sudden I was on the ground! It felt surreal at first. Wendy and I were just running along, chatting about an upcoming team event and--bang! I was laying face down on the ground. I slipped on a black walnut and went down fast.
|That goes for running too!|
The remainder of our ran was not easy, but I am really glad I finished the planned miles. It may have helped to keep me loosened up. I am so thankful that I was not out there alone. Had I been, I am sure I would have lost it, started to cry and limped back to my car. Had I been hurt worse, I am so glad I had a buddy there to help me out.
I am still pretty sore today. My hands and knee are really scraped up and my elbow/shoulder hurts worse today than it did yesterday. But I am tough! I will be ok. My biggest concern was being ok for my Disney World trip in a few days and the Wine and Dine Half Marathon. I think I will heal just fine.
Have you ever hurt yourself during a run?
A dream is a wish...
