As you can see, I learned how to fall from the best. I did manage to roll rather than skid, and I avoided face contact, so I think I came out pretty well. I bruised my shoulder, elbow, and one finger, and I have gouges on my shoulder and knee.
|This is EXACTLY how I looked when I fell.|
I didn't take pictures because. . .gross. Also, as far as badges of honor go, this wasn't that big of a deal, thank goodness.
So now, I am officially a trail runner, baptized in blood.
This was a fallback week, with nine miles of trail running, but next week the mileage goes up again. Will I make it? Will Shelby have to pull me by my hair? Will I remain a ray of sunshine? Stay tuned to find out. Until then, run happy, Peeps!
