running is on pause due to all the blood

this morning, at the VERY wee hour of 6:07 am, i took one of the dogs out for a quick walk. less than three feet from the porch, she lunged for the grass, and i tripped, stubbing my bare toe on the sidewalk, and ripping off an alarming chunk of skin.

the manfriend patched me up and is taking both dogs for a nice walk now, but considering the shooting pains when i put my foot down, i think it is safe to say i will not be running for a bit.

also, it would be hard to put a shoe on over the ace bandage and gauze. i’ll downsize to bandaids later, but for now…i am out of commission.
