I Fell.

It was a Tuesday morning around a quarter past 6. Since Fall had begun, and the days were getting shorter, the sun wouldn’t rise for another half hour or so.

As I made my way down the last leg of my morning (4.63 mile) run, I entered a street with poor lighting and a brick sidewalk. I was running along, almost done with my run, and contemplating if I would be able to up my mileage for the next run, when WHAP! My foot caught a jagged rise in the sidewalk, and I toppled to the ground, catching my fall with my hands and left knee, then rolling onto my left hip.

But upon hopping back up from the ground, I was met with a super-adrenaline rush. I suddenly felt refreshed, as if I could keep running for miles. But I ran home.

The moral of the story:

And give yourself a good scare the next time you want to add mileage to your run.
