Falling down

falling-down-is-a-part-of-life-getting-back-up-is-living-quote-1Tuesday morning at approximately  6:00 am I was out for a run and I fell.  It happened so quickly but there was this split second moment when I thought “damn I’m falling and there is nothing I can do about it.”  Luckily I was close to a patch of grass and aimed for that but I didn’t get there without first skidding across the sidewalk. It took me a moment to get up.  It was quite shocking. I have to admit I was grateful the sun wasn’t up because it was embarrassing as well.  Although arguably had the sun been up, I probably would not have fallen. The sidewalk  had 4 inch lip and my foot just got caught. Either way I hobbled home, luckily I wasn’t too far, and jumped into the shower to wash off all of the scrapes which hurt like hell.  I kept reminding myself that the pain was nothing compared to giving birth and to suck it up but it really did sting.  So the biggest causality to the fall besides my left knee which should heal okay was my Fitbit.  RIP Fitbit.  You are missed every time I take a step.

Luckily Fitbit has the best customer service around and they sent me a 25% off coupon for a new one.  Hopefully I will be all healed up for my half marathon on Sunday, I think I am going to take the rest of this week off.  I’ve earned it.

Happy Hump Day.
