Fall {ing down}

Today is the first day of Fall, which if you recall, is my favorite season of all.

I thought I would celebrate ... by taking an epic fall on my morning run {ironic how I cannot remember the last Saturday when I went on a run}.

Apparently I stepped on uneven ground, and it brought me to my knees. Quite literally.

As I tried to hold back the tears, while in dog-position, I tried to stand and couldn't.

So, I crawled for a good four or five feet.

Meanwhile, cars passing.

Attractive sight, no?

I looked at my ankle and saw it was already swollen.

I brought myself to stand on my good ankle ... And then kinda ... hopped home for the remaining four blocks.


And this is what I was left with ...

When I showed mama the ankle she said she was taking me Instacare. Immediately.

I think Instacare wants to ruin my life.

I 'spose it was a nice suggestion. And clearly that is all it was as I continued to take this photo with my phone.

Good news: it isn't broken.

Bad news: I tore the ligament off the bone. I cannot walk and the doctor actually expects me to use crutches. Pff. We will see about that.

I am wearing an attractive brace. I figure it is almost attractive as me hopping those four blocks home.

All I can say is I am happy that winter is not a verb, otherwise I would be a tad frightened what my future has in store for me. I will uber careful though come spring.

Happy Fall, everyone! :)

Um, that's now how I would have chosen to ring in the new season, but oh well. ;) Sorry dear. Hope you heal well!

If I saw you crawling on all fours, I would have stopped to help you. Possibly I might have thought you were a little strange... But most likely the first option.

On a serious note, that looks so painful! I am SO sorry you had to hop home!
