So, I did a face plant right into the cement today. The local YMCA held their annual Spring Run (although it felt more like fall) and I decided to partake. They start a 5k run at 8am and a 10k run at 9am. So, it was the prefect opportunuity for me to get in a long training run for the Indy Mini. The 5k went great - I finished, said congrats to my friends that ran and did awesome, used the restroom, and came back to the start line for the 10k. All was fine, minus the gale force winds, until mile 4.5. I was running along and the next thing I knew, I was on the ground. Apparently I tripped over a piece of concrete sticking up that I did not see. Of course, a bunch of people, including a police officer, saw the face plant. I picked myself up and started running again, but I felt so dumb! Thankfully no major injuries except for a sore left hip. However, I still feel dumb about it and my hip is pretty sore as I write. Stupid concrete and potholes!
