If I Fell

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, July 30, 2008 with 3 comments
I have been saving up this title for when one of the speedygeese had a fall. So that we could all have a good laugh at their expense. And for a long time everyone has managed to keep their feet. Until Tuesday, yesterday, when would you believe it, one of us finally did take a tumble on one of our runs.

It happened at the 11k mark of a 22k run. The person in question who fell did not feel tired, but stumbled four times during the run and fell once, unfortunately on a concrete footpath, getting feet caught up in some packing tape left lying on the path.

You may guess who it was if I say that the person had run a hard 25k three days earlier in the Bush Capital events, and followed this up with a short fast race the day after that!

The song title is more accurate than I anticipated it would be.
