Trail running is my favourite and I often think as I hop, skip and jump over tree roots, fallen branches and muddy puddles that I must concentrate hard and watch every inch of ground to avoid an accident. I was thinking that today on a narrow track with a drop on both sides when I suddenly felt my foot catch on something and over I went. First time I ever fell on a run too. Thankfully, I landed on soft undergrowth and slowed my fall by putting out my hand as a brake in the soft mud. Slight bruise on my knee but apart from that, able to carry on! Don't think it will stop my running adventuring any time soon but it does make me think about safety running alone - would have to phone my husband at work to come n rescue me, bless him, he came home early to check I was ok 😍
