A Little Fall on a Long Run
My friends were initially stunned. One minute I'm standing there, the next minute I am gone, and all they heard was screaming as I plummeted to the other side. My friend Rhonda, as you can see, sprang into action and began trying to pull me out of the black hole below. Elizabeth, on the other hand, was bent in half laughing her ass off. And Julie... well, she was simply Julie. Oh, and there was Stephanie... she grabbed her iPhone and started snapping away. I could have been dead, but at least she could win Photo Journalist of the Year for capturing it all in pictures. They came through for me eventually though and pulled me back up to the trail. And we had a hell of a good laugh. I mean, really...what happened there?!
I was a bit hurt. I cut my inner thigh on the wall, and it burned and bled for the entire run. I have a pretty good-sized bruise in a pretty delicate area. It's been four days now, and that scrape is still tender and oozing (sorry for being a little gross) and makes cycling very, very uncomfortable. But I got that darn run in, and we laughed about my mishap the entire time...and still are, in fact. I have a feeling we are going to be laughing about this incident for a long time to come. Such is life with us. We often say we need our own reality TV show. Stay tuned. Because life is definitely an adventure on this end.
