Sidewalk : 1, Jessica : 0

Yup that's right....I had a run in with the sidewalk on Saturday.  An ugly one.  I took the puppy out for a jog when I woke up yesterday afternoon (I work nights...no I don't sleep until the afternoon for no reason!).  I decided to try out running north of my house instead of south.  So we took off, and I was feeling REALLY good!  We hit a busy street right outside my neighborhood.  Dumb move...now I know why Amanda avoids running out of her neighborhood!  There was SO much traffic!  My puppy-love was doing great, staying super close, until I tripped...rolled my ankle...and FACE PLANTED on the sidewalk.  I accidentally let go of his leash and he stepped into the street BRIEFLY then ran to my rescue when he realized I was on the  ground!  Such a good puppy!  I sat on the ground for a minute and started to pet the dog...a sad attempt at playing it off!  I got up and attempted to start running again...pain in my ankle, my left knee hurt, my hands and leg were all scraped up...so I said forget it and walked home.  I made a couple more run attempts but they didn't last long.  1.77 miles...longest walk home EVER.  I tried to take a picture, but it didn't turn out good...I'm sure you can imagine it!!

So... Sidewalk : 1
