So I've been really digging my jogs lately. Maybe it's something in the air, but they've just felt extra satisfying lately. The other day however, about a mile and a half in....I turfed it.

So all of a sudden, I'm on the sidewalk and kind of unsure how to recover from such an incident...and is it possible to maintain any dignity or cool? I just rolled over, sat up, got in the straddles and...acted like I was stretching. ??? haha I realized right after I started doing it that NOBODY watching the incident would have ever believed that what I just did was planned and I just wanted to stretch mid-run. I just got up and kept running. These cute old guys on their porch said, "Miss, are you hurt?". Oh please don't be so sweet to me or I'll probably cry. Embarrassment + genuine kindness = me tearing right on up. It's all good in the hood. I was pleased with the lil' bruise--some cool shades of purple. I just wish I had a cool story with it. Who's going to be impressed with, "Oh yeah this? I just fell on my face while lifting my legs one at a time at a rapid pace." Yeah...definite loss of cool points I feel.


  1. Oh dear! That looks like it hurt! And you know what, the ground here is sometimes very uneven! I trip walking up the hill to campus on a regular basis! I have yet to fall all the way over, I usually just launch myself forward a few feet, but it is only a matter of time! :)

    Sorry I missed your Nacho party and then completely forgot to text you! I feel stretched thin this semester! Cross your fingers for me that I can talk someone into taking my shift at work so I can come to the mission reunion! I need to see you soon!

  2. you make me laugh right out loud.

  3. Such a good telling of the story. That knee looks gnarly!
