I went out this morning to run the causeway with two of my running partners. The local art festival is next weekend and the 5K that is associated with it goes up over the causeway and back. We are sadly lacking for any hills around here, so that is the most challenging that a race can be. I was doing fine until a HUGE crack in the sidewalk jumped up and tripped me. It must have been huge or I wouldn't have wiped out completely and scraped all the skin off of the left half of my body. I am only thankful that the people I was running with had quick reflexes and managed to avoid tripping over me. I had planned to work on some quilting this afternoon, but it's hard to do that without skin on the palm of your hand. Sigh. The reason I run is that I am lacking all of the coordination and athletic skill that would allow me to do other sports. Still, at least it was only skin, it will all grow back.
