      Wow! That was one heck of a spill. I've only had one, but quite frankly, I play it pretty safe (scared). I run on trails all the time, and I've seen my reckless friends. I want to live to run another day.

  10. #dailymission My worst spill on a bike was when I was about 11 or 12 years old. A friend and I were riding back from his house to mine. There is a small hill just before the subdivision road. ... read more

  11. #dailymission. I usually tumble at least once or twice in trail races. But, I fall really good. Never did anything major.

      My worst fall was about 6 years ago on a road run. Tripped on uneven sidewalk and my hands took the worst of it (I think I had on long pants or capris so my knees weren't that bad). So much gravel and dirt imbedded in my hands, it hurt to even wash them. Chunk out of my right hand and lots of blood.

      Small stuff for me. Scraped hands and such. Still feeling the remnants of my ankle turn from my recent trail runs.
