Along the way, there was some broken sidewalk. I misjudged the distance, tripped on some of the broken sidewalk, then fell.
Trying to get up, my boo, boos looked pretty bad. I can see blood trailing down one arm. I can also see blood coming out from 2 fingers. And, that's before I saw blood trickling down 1 knee.
I picked myself up and continued on my way.
And, along the way, I almost crashed again. There was a garbageman emptying a garbage bag out of public garbage can. Without looking for pedestrians, he picked up the garbage bag and put it directly in my path. Fortunately, I wasn't going that fast, so I jumped over the garbage to safety.
Now, I was thinking I am jinxed today.
I continued onwards. My knee must have looked pretty bad. At one point, a nice lady pushing a child in a stroller going the opposite direction saw me approaching. She yelled at me, "I have some clean wipes."
I thanked her, said I was alright and continued onwards.
When I finally finished my run, this is what I saw on 1 of my legs:
|1 of my boo, boos. I felt a bit late for Halloween.|
I was planning on going to the gym afterwards. But, I decided to give my wounds some time to heal.
I spent quite some time cleaning my wounds, spraying antiseptic spray and band aiding them up using some Neosporin.
