Episode 23

This was a pretty fantastic week. Great weather - lots of sun and blue sky, and nice warm temperatures that we never got all summer.

The photo is my poor elbow after I fell again on the trail at Fanshawe Lake. I wasn't even running at the time, but standing at the top of a steep gravel-coated downhill, trying to take a picture with my Crackberry. I lost my footing and couldn't stop the slide. My elbow, knee, and left hip got the worst of it - especially my hip which is now a lovely shade of black/green.

I came home and promised Reg I wouldn't go running out there alone anymore. I have other options for trail running, and once Thanksgiving is over and the main park closes for the season, I can run the trails there without fear of falling over the cliff.

I'm going to be making a big announcement on next week's show - so stay tuned. It's big for me - won't be for any of you. HA!

  1. I think it is funny how some trail runs can work! I ran Jenny Creek recently. I was concentrating on the trail surface as it is many and varied surfaces. As I ran, I concentrated on the trail 6 to 8 feet ahead. My feet and legs were secure.
    Unfortunately, it was that branch at forehead level that dropped me to the ground!
    Don't worry, though. I was hit in the head so I'm not hurt!
