I don’t have any gorgeous sun rise pictures (I ran without my iPhone/camera) but I do have a picture of the band-aid I got on my run this morning.
Somehow while running to and around Castle Island I injured my finger!?! And I have no idea how it happened. After running around Castle Island, I stopped at a water fountain and noticed my finger was bleeding a lot. I walked over to a guy in a truck (real safe of me, I know) and asked him for a napkin since I still had to run 1.5 miles back to my place. He was very nice and gave me a couple of napkins, a band-aid, and pointed out that I must have whipped my face numerous times because I had blood streaked all over my face. (Not only was it on my face but all over my shirt as well. I probably looked like a real winner on my run: hot, sweaty, and blood on my face.) I quickly thanked the man, wrapped my finger up, and continued my run home.
Of course, the entire run home I had crazy thoughts running through my head (thanks to my Grand Jury Duty days). What if there was a needle or blade on the water fountain and that’s how I cut myself? What if it was contaminated?? What if I get sick from it? How else would this have happened?!?
Thankfully, I made it home and my finger is OK. 🙂 And I completed day #1 of my half marathon training!
Last night’s dinner was much less dramatic than my run this morning. Mike and I threw together Annie’s Mac & Cheese, frozen veggies, and grilled sausage. Easy peasy!
Gotta take off for work now! Enjoy your Monday!
