Where is everyone these days?
Officially feeling fed up. Ran Kirkwall half on Sunday because it is there and to make up numbers to a grand total of 24, tripped in last mile, skinned knees and hands, got up, tried to "catch up" tripped again(why oh why?) and came down with a terrific crunch and upper front teeth bashed inwards. Got up, thought about crying, walked a few steps and jogged to the finish (1.54) dripping blood from mouth, nose and knees. Looked like a monster, teeth knocked backwards, waited for Peter and visiting friend to finish, other friend phoned NHS 24, went home, waited for call - ended up in oral surgery with maxillary fracture containing
the displaced teeth. Very expertly reduced but got a brace and soft food only for 4 weeks and I guess going off to run Speyside Way on Sat is now out.
So that makes three events I've missed this summer, maybe I should give up on 2015!
Hope everyone else is going better.
