It started off like any other early morning except this one was especially hard to get out of bed. Oh well, did it anyway. Met Tara and Kristen at our corner uptown and we set off on our supposively 4 mile trot.
We took a different loop today to change things up and we were coming up Providence towards uptown, you know, with rush hour traffic so lots of people were around.
I tripped. And fell. In my neon pink fleece. In rush hour traffic. And crashed. Hard.
Mostly concerned about my phone, I asked if my phone was okay. Tara and Kristen said it was fine and kept asking how I was. They took good care of me! They did have time to mention that it was, "my turn" as they have both fallen recently. Sidewalks jump up and getcha sometimes!
I have fallen years ago in Southpark by myself and lost my house key...that was real exciting too. Didn't hurt nearly like this.
Today, I skinned my elbow through THREE layers of clothing. Nice! And it bruised instantly, can't touch it. My pants protected my knee really well so I will just have a humongo bruise and it's scuffed a bit.
A woman driving by saw it happen and stopped to ask if I was okay...so sweet. I arrived back at my condo and Isaac our friendly concierge asked if he could help me clean it up. Bless his heart, that was so nice of him. I kindly said I'd go up and shower and be okay. :)
I'm so thankful to my girlfriends I was with....they stopped and made sure I'd make it home. I'm SO glad I didn't fall into either of them. They were in front and I was behind, kinda between them. It actually worked out as well as it could have. And then we just ran on home. Hey at least we got 6 miles in when we were only planning on 4. Ha!
Another adventure and probably not our last!
