|This is Pepper's "How much longer do we have to wait for your Garmin?" face|
The plan was 5 miles at an easy pace. Everything was going great until I went to check my Garmin peep at mile 3 and I tripped on the uneven sidewalk and went down. I caught my fall with my hands, and scraped up my palms, knee, leg, and lower butt. I'm just a big scraped up mess, right before my cousin's bachelorette party vacation to Nashville. As I posted on my Facebook page last night, seconds after falling down I made sure to pause my Garmin and take some photos for the blog before fully evaluating that I was okay.
Thankfully all of the wounds are simply scrapes and no real bruises or breaks. I'm still going to do some foam rolling and stretching just to get out the kinks of anything that might have tightened up in the fall.
Thankfully Pepper was a saint and just waited patiently as I took my breath for a minute. The cut on my hand hurts the most. I just have to remember not to give anyone a high five for awhile. But I don't think that would be too difficult. Have you ever wiped out on a run? How wicked were your wounds? Those dang sidewalk squares and their uneven-ness! I know I'm not the only one to have felt the wrath of their fury! (right...??)
