A trip, and a fall..... but my own shoe laces?

After a week of driving a lot of miles and spending time with family I was able to get back out for a more normal run this morning. I did run a couple times while with the family but not nearly what I usually do or hoped to do. That is not good considering I needed to start marathon training this week. The running was only part of it, the other part was eating differently than I would normally eat at home, especially the quantities.

This mornings run was not a good 6 mile run. I started off good running from the high school after dropping off my daughter for her Cross Country practice, but then things changed quickly after just 1/2 mile when I tripped over my own shoe laces (yes, my own shoe laces..... and they were tied!) The first time I caught myself and looked down to see my shoe laces tied, but maybe a bit longer loops. I didn't think much about it and continued on when I tripped the second time. The second time I went down on my hands and one knee. My knee took the brunt of it and is now missing a bit of skin and caused a limp for a few seconds.

I continued on and did the 6 miles but had a couple times where I wasn't feeling good and walked a little bit (mile 3 & 5) I did choose a road I had never run before and I didn't realize how hilly it was. That coupled with the 13 hours of driving yesterday and the poor choices in eating over the last week I am not at all surprised.

A funny thing about the trip......

Just Wednesday night we were playing a game at my brothers house. I don't remember the name of the game but they chose me and then pulled a card. The statement read that if I would die a strange death how would I die. There were 6 choices, but one of them was that I would die tripping over my own shoe laces (it was the answer I chose, as well as at least a couple others). I thought of that immediatly when getting up off the ground. I have never tripped over my own shoe laces while running, much less while they were tied! I guess I better go clean this wound. I didn't die falling, but if I died from an infection it would still technically qualify.

  5. I've tripped over my own shoes laces a couple of times, usually running with other people at a slower pace, but finally decided to do something about the ridiculously long shoe laces running shoe companies are using these days.
