Never Will I Ever...

  • Complain about working out or going for a run ever in my life.  I've never wanted to run so much as I do today.  It probably has to do with the fact that I can't right now.  
  • Run without my cell phone.  I'm sure some passerby would have had one, but I was really thankful that my iPod was not charged yesterday.
  • Be without my insurance cards. We definitely would have gotten to the ER faster, had I not insisted on stopping back at the apartment for them. I know that I would have been fine, but I didn't want to deal with that mess later on.
  • Be embarrassed to use crutches. It beats hopping out of the hospital with one running shoe and one hospital sock.  
  • Take my legs & mobility for granted.  I never thought about what a gift it was to be able to walk around the grocery store, walk to the L station, or take Oliver outside.
Even though I miss working out, being injured has freed up some of my time for other things.  Like wedding things I've been putting off :-/ Hopefully this week, I can finish printing out menus and reply cards.  Although, those HGTV marathons sounds much more appealing :-)


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your fall!! That's really scary. I've always thought about the "what if I couldn't run scenario" and it's SO true. We take our bodies for granted everyday. I hope you have a speedy recovery and watch tons of HGTV marathons :)

  2. oh..so sorry about your accident! hope your recovery is quick and problem free!
