In other news related to my life, today I had my first wipe-out of the running season! Lauren and I were about halfway into our 4 mile run, going slightly downhill, when suddenly I was on the ground. It honestly happened so fast that I can't say for sure what happened, but I think that I didn't pick my foot up high enough and just caught my toe on the sidewalk. With two scraped knees, scraped palms, and a blow to the left shoulder I was up again in a few second and after ensuring that all was well, we started running again. I looked pretty rough with blood running down both of my legs, but the scrapes really weren't too deep and the best way to not focus on it was to just keep going. Once we got back to the gym I realized that my little tumble has resulted in my ID card falling. And since our ID cards run our lives for the most part, that was a bit frustrating. I was just saying recently how happy I was that almost 2 years of college and I've never lost it...oh well, it happens. Chelsea was awesome enough to buy me dinner with her meal points (I covered her once a while ago when she thought that she had lost hers), so I was able to get some dinner and tomorrow morning I'll go get a new card.
Other than that, the run was wonderful. The weather was perfect! Running in shorts and a t-shirt in February? I'll take that! Lauren pushed me a lot and I'm really thankful for that. It's all worth it in the end. Life is good :)
