This morning’s run called for 5 miles, as we have our Elk Grove 10K this Sunday. Forgetting that it’s dark at 5:30am, we took off to our favorite square run around the city. Many places we are familiar with were VERY dark.
Dueling Banjos brought me up the overpass, and after a quick stop at Mile 2, I started back out past the truck stop. On to the short strip of grass. Without any lights except the trucker passing us, I didn’t see the copper pipe sticking out, and I fell. Again. On the same knee.
It hurt, and Kim says, “Let’s just go home”. But we were already 2.5 miles away. My whole side of the leg was wet, so I knew I was bleeding.
I also knew I had no choice but to keep running. It felt great, and I am loving this training, even though it’s tough.
Oh look. Another metaphor. 🙂
