Have a Nice Trip?

Well, I fell pretty hard around mile five of today's lunchtime run. I've been tripped up before, but this is the first time I can recall a complete crash landing, especially on a sidewalk. That said, I am pretty surprised how little I got hurt...just a few fairly small scrapes and, while I do feel some tender spots on my finger tip and elbows, no bruising. My Nathan Quickdraw also took some of the blow, but nothing that affects its usability.

I got up pretty quickly, used water from my bottle to rinse my wounds, and finished the last mile-and-a-quarter faster than my previous few....today's heat definitely slowed me down.
