This morning I tripped on a root and took quite a spill while trail running. Usually I am quite attentive while running and very deliberate about picking my feet up for exactly that reason. This morning, however, I was listening to an audiobook while running and I suspect that that was the culprit – I was running on autopilot and not paying enough attention to roots and rocks on a particularly technical downhill segment.
I’m fine, though – just scraped up a bit. Lesson learned: audiobooks and trails don’t mix. Music and trails do mix. Nothing in my ears but the sound of nature mixes best of all!
One thought on “Rollin’ and Tumblin’”
Time to invent root radar.
