I’m a fan of sushi! Spicy Tuna rolls, California rolls, Boston rolls….yeah delish….but today I “ate it” on the sidewalk and rolled my ankle. #fail

The Crunchy Ankle roll

Gratefully I caught myself quickly and am pretty sure I avoided any major damage. I ran 2 additional miles afterward and everything felt pretty good. Seriously, the entire park loop that I was running on was not only shoveled but super salted and totally dry yet this one little snowball just played a trick on me.

outdoor run

nice and easy 5 miles. nice and balmy 25 degrees.

I completed a nice easy 5 miles out in a balmy 25 degrees. Tomorrow I’m running 13.1 and it looks like the temp will be about 11 degrees, so today was a good check-in to see how many layers I’ll really need. I hate to overheat.

pre-run gear check. feels like the right amount of layers. let's give it a whirl...

I’ve made some progress getting some of the rooms back in order since having my house painted. Will post some before and after pics tomorrow.

And now I better go accomplish something OTHER than running and blogging.


Question: Ever ALMOST injure yourself but somehow manage to come out unscathed? Tell me about it? 


  1. I tripped and went boom just last week. Darn cracks in the sidewalk! But I got back up, brushed myself off and completed another 4 miles. Small scrape on my knee and hand but good otherwise.

    • whew! just scrapes! Funny you said “went boom”. My grandma used to ask me as a child if I went boom and that meant did I poop in my pants? HA!

  2. I think I did injure myself, and didn’t know I did. In the Mississippi Mud 50 K I twisted my ankle. I hurt a bit but never looked down to see what it was, and the next day I ran the New Orleans Marathon and it wasn’t until After the marathon that I was walking with you that I was in pain…and It wasn’t til w got to the room that I finally iced my ankle…after I ran 57.2 miles and walked another 3 or so in New Orleans with you…and I survived…so I wouldn’t say unscathed..but I ultimately came out ok
