Racing Professionally So You Don't Have To: One Triathlete Living Life And Sharing The Adventure.
Impressive. How did you manage to slide on the back of your shoulder? I am very good at destroying my arms and hips; I have never succeeded in skinning my back
It's one of my secret superhero skills. I had caught my toe and was in full-on Superman mode; I was attempting to "stop, drop, and roll" to protect a direct bashing-in of my chin and nose. I formed a loose tuck and tried to head to the right, but when I hit the loose gravel surface of the trail, I slid, stuck mid-roll, instead of completing the roll. The pictures of my right fore-arm and right quad are equally as gnarly.This of course occurred in the first 3 minutes of my run, and I finished the hour. Watching the realization of "that girl is dripping blood" dawn on the face of all the people coming towards me on the trail was great run entertainment.As a high-school friend of mine used to say - "Skin: it's a renewable resource."
