After 2.5 years of running, it finally happened. I fell. As clumsy as I am, I'm surprised it took this long. I used the same path I did for a speed workout the other day, and even with my head lamp...I still bit it by a break in the sidewalk. I was gawking at some house I'd love to live in someday. Anywhoo, I sat for a second, cried and thought about walking back. Then said a couple words and ran back. What a run to kick off August! , 84 °F, HI: 87 °F, 7mph S, 58%

    Oh no...I've done that! Last Dec. I was running in town and I had no excuse...I just tripped over the sidewalk and fell. Of course, people were driving by and saw me. I was more worried about whether or not I'd ripped my tights. But I did the same thing...I got up, brushed myself off, and kept going. August can only get better, right? :)

    Oh no! falling sucks..but it happens. All the time for me. haha! Way to get back up and run home. I think running after a fall is best just because it eases out the muscles. If I don't run after a fall I'm very sore, if I continue to run I'm usually not as bad.

    It's those old neighborhoods with uneven sidewalks that get me every so often!
