Oh the love of running

Ew gross! Yes, these are my lovely running shoes, but they weren't so lovely today. Adrian and I went running with Emily Fuller this morning. It was our six mile run today and I was determined to finish. At about our fourth mile, I looked down and my shoe was covered in blood. Emily and I decided to stop and take a look at my foot. There was a tiny cut on one of my toes. Lame! Luckily there was a medical center so I could get a bandaid and be on my way. Well, Emily wouldn't let me run the rest of the way so we walked. Adrian had left us about mile three since we were going too slow and it started to rain. He had no idea what was going on with us. He did jump in his car and try to search for us. Oh, the love that he has for me. Well, we finished even though we didn't run the entire thing but we finished. Yay for us.

That's disgusting! I can't believe how much blood there is. At first, I thought it was the design of the shoe. Good job toughing it out and finishing the run!

I can't believe all that is from a tiny cut. Crazy.
