Didn’t get to plant a damn thing. I went on a run on Blue Mountain with Alice. I was in the middle of solving all kinds of problems when I went down hard. Nearly threw up from the pain. I sprained my ankle (resprain from similar loving-the-run-and-not-paying-attention scenario last Sept). As I was writhing and sobbing in the middle of the trail, Alice was happily smelling and trotting. Although she is a gal’s best friend, she is not one of those dogs that becomes immediately alarmed when her mom is upset. Really she was just annoyed that the run was cut short. After thankfully encountering someone with a phone, a very painful hike out (it is amazing what you can do when you have to), I am doing the whole RICE thing. Although I am not very good at it. I would much rather be doing anything else really.
I know it doesn’t look that bad in this photo but trust me it is.
Always carry a cell phone with you when you run unless your dog performs like Lassie.
