...so hard sometimes that I fall. Today was run #3 at the Rose Bowl and I decided to push for 6 miles. I'm getting ready for a half marathon at the end of April, so I figured I should start breaking out of my 3 mile comfort zone. It was an absolutely perfect afternoon for running. Great weather, not too crowded, and I felt motivated to keep going no matter what.
Now I have all these different mental games that I play with myself when I run - little mantras, scenarios, etc - and sometimes near the end of a run, I get crazy and decide to sprint as fast as I can. Well today I had one of those moments where I was about to do something great and then tripped on a reflector and fell HARD on both my knees. After shouting a few expletives I got up said thanks to those who asked if I was ok and sprinted to my car. Emergency towel served a greater purpose today. Here's the damage:
Above: right knee; below: left
