As I popped up and kept running all I could think of is if I was going to be ok to run tomorrow. I mean, I felt ok now, but you know how falls can be - you feel fine as soon as it happens but hours later you feel a thousand times worse. For right now though, I had a finish line to get to....
In all seriousness, it hurt like crazy, but I am ok and it totally could have been so much worse (spoiler: I finish the half marathon just fine but despite cleaning and treating the wound I did get it infected a good bit).
Jeff and I grabbed some bagels and stopped at the drug store to get some first aid stuff to clean my wound from my great fall of 2018.
It this was an absolutely perfect way to start the day (despite my tumble). It was a great race, great course, and a fun time with family and friends. I absolutely LOVED the new course too!
On a serious note though, it is so awesome that an athlete like JuJu would be out today to support the kids and the Pittsburgh Marathon weekend. Race weekend means so much to this community and seeing someone like him come out and support this races really adds to the excitement.
Now, off to enjoy the afternoon, relax, refuel, and get ready for tomorrow's half marathon!
