NaBloPoMo – Nov 2

Free day to write. Of all the things going through my mind right now, the only two in the forefront:

My GD ankle being busted AGAIN and the fact that I have 25 days until my parents and in-laws ascend into my house for Thanksgiving and I have SO much I want to get cleaned before they arrive.

Funny story: I just posted about busting my ankle up during a training run back in July. Rolled it pretty good and it was swollen, took me out of the Firecracker 5K on the 4th of July. Welp, guess what? Rolled it again, this time to the point of the ankle bone actually touching the asphalt. DX: Severe sprain with a possible hairline fracture. Talk about a kick in the balls.

Nice baseball, huh??

All I wanted was to get out of the office for a bit, go for a run in the nice, crisp (read: 28*) weather and lose myself for a little bit. Dealing with my officemate was getting to be quite the pain in the ass and it would be relaxed me. Instead, I find myself in the path of a van, trying to get into Dunkin Donuts (she clearly needed to be running with me but I’m thinking it was Karma that caused this for me thinking that). I tried to get out of her way a smidge quicker. BOOM. Over I go.

At least it’s not broken. I can still walk on it but there is no way I can run. I’m dying right now, believe me. I have the Turkey Trot 5K coming up on Nov 29. I figure, this will justify my indulgence for Thanksgiving and for the fact that the Ravens play the Steelers Thanksgiving night.

Lessons learned: Being fat doesn’t kill you. Exercise tries to kill you. I had much better balance when I was fatter. Well, at least I fell a lot less when I was fatter.

  1. I totally know how that goes with parents coming into town. And the bright side is at least your ankle isn’t broken. 🙂
