Today I Tasted the Pavement…
And it was everything I imagined it would be. I had no idea that so many thoughts could run across ones mind in such a short instant. Here are the things I thought about as I was falling for what felt like an eternity:
-Wow, I think I am going to eat the pavement.
-Yep. I am definitely falling.
-I literally just tripped over thin air. Is this what I get for my Ode to Feet?
-Ooo…AN the RB had a bad fall like this about 6 weeks ago, poor thing.
-I need to somehow turn my body, yeah, like this, so my face doesn’t end up looking like hamburger.
-What’s that? A car full of college kids back in town for the year? Great. Call me Grace.
-This is going to hurt.
-Yep, I am going to have to mention this to Caution: Redhead Running. I know she will appreciate this.
-Tuck and roll. That's right, I guess my miltary days of jumping out of dueces with an M4 will come in handy afterall...
-Yep, pavement is hard.
-I am not sliding, that is good.
-I guess I will just lay here and maybe nobody noticed.
Well, in true World Champion fashion I got up and ran another 1.5 miles. We didn’t finish our planned 5 miles but managed 3.5 instead. I am ok with that.
Today I am grateful:
-that I seem to be un-seriously-scathed. My fall could have been much worse!
-that I have 5 days home with my little buddy, i.e. daycare closed Thur and Fri, and I am keeping him home Monday for daddy's homecoming! My weekend begins now.
-for an AWESOME new haircut by Paige at Angelo Mendi. So if you are in the area and need a good cut, let her know Amanda sent you!
Here are a few pictures for your viewing enjoyment, thanks AN the RB for everything. Today I would have stayed on the pavement, waiting to be ran over if it weren't for you.
