She flies through the air with the greatest of ease…

So there I was minding my own business, going for a jog with my roommate and neighbor, when all of a sudden everything shifted to slow motion mode.

I saw my foot strike a root. I felt my body fly through the air. I thought Wow I’m flying through the air for a long time. I’m really not looking forward to landing. This isn’t going to feel very good. Sure enough I eventually landed, but now I was sliding. Still sliding. I wonder when I’m going to stop sliding. What will be my course of action once I stop sliding. Am I still really sliding? When I stop I’m going to jump and keep going. I’ve got my plan. Now I just need to stop sliding. Eventually I stopped sliding.

I’m not sure when slow motion mode ended. I may have laid on the ground for an eternity or just moments before I decided that I better get up and start running again.

My friends offered to cut the run short, but how lame would that have been. My knees still would have stung at home AND I would have been sad that I missed a beautiful run around the lake. Talk about double whammy.

Even though, I like to include pictures on posts, there are no pictures today because no one likes to look at scabs.

Sounds like it was "just" abrasions and no sprains or fractures - except perhaps your pride. Glad you were able to continue your run and enjoy the beauty of the lake.

Oh but I love scabs! I can send you a nice pic of the scar I've got from the mud run ;)

Ow we!! You are so determined to just get up and keep on running! Isn't slow-mo strange! Hope you are healing well.

I actually like seeing a good war wound. It's better when bleeding though. Then I feel like I can do something to help.
