I figure it had to happen eventually if I ran for long enough. And the other paths I run on have bumps in them, too, so I can't say it's strictly the sidewalk's fault. I was almost done with the run and just wasn't paying attention as much. I was glad that a I didn't bang up my knees much, because that might have been much more of an issue so close to my race.I feel for you on that fall. I had something similar happen to me a couple of summers ago - tripped on a crack in the sidewalk and down I went, badly scraping a knee, an elbow, and a hand. I haven’t ran on sidewalks since! That’s good that your hubby was around to pick you up, even if it was the shortest rescue ever!
ETA: Also, I successfully ran that route again on the neighborhood sidewalks on Thursday, uneventfully. But I am done with that route until next fall, now that it's going to be daylight for longer after work. I can run some of the trails that I prefer!
