A really dangerous run however I’m fairly fortunate.


First got here shock, then got here ugly crying on the aspect of the highway for five minutes.

We have been doing a one mile velocity interval, and we have been at a 5:45 tempo.  I used to be instantly behind my mates, and earlier than we realized it, there was a sinkhole (I want the image would do it justice as a result of it was enormous).  It’s the strangest feeling to count on your foot to hit the bottom, after which it doesn’t; I flew.  The one factor that went by means of my mind as I fell was what my BIL taught me, “tuck and roll.”  My BIL is the BYU Cosmo Coach and dunk crew coach, so he is aware of all about falling.  I’m completely happy I tucked and rolled as a result of if I had put my fingers out, I feel I’d have snapped my wrist or one thing.  I landed on my aspect and simply lay on the bottom for a bit earlier than attempting to stand up.

I fell proper in entrance of the Utah Valley Marathon race director.  It occurred proper in entrance of his home, and he seemed on the sinkhole and stated that it needed to have occurred inside the final day or two, so I referred to as the town to allow them to know as a result of this might trigger extra critical issues for a biker going sooner than me.  It was humorous as a result of I’ve emailed this explicit race director for years about promoting, and many others., and this was my first time assembly him, sobbing in his entrance yard.

Fortunately, simply the pores and skin hurts, and my buddy taking this image with us is the BYU athletic coach, so he was in a position to try it, too.

I really feel foolish about how upset I’m over my favourite gloves, however not less than they saved my fingers from scraping up, too!  I like these gloves a lot.

Beck was involved that I’d overlook to pack his ‘hair jelly.’

Drove south to seek out some sunshine for spring break:

We discovered it.

The day ended significantly better than it began!

Completed up with some star gazing.


Inform me a couple of fall you’ve taken on
