Have You Ever Fallen While Running?

I went for a run in the woods with my dog yesterday, and I brought the neighbor's dog too, since Bonnie loves the company. This furry friend is almost 100 pounds, and a little clumsy, so when I started doing my sprint intervals, he got excited and sprinted right into me, knocking me clean on my behind. I laid on the ground in shock and held back the tears, while I felt the left side of my bum and elbow throbbing from the impact. He didn't even come back to see if I was OK, but Bonnie did (good dog). I finally got up and limped home, hurting physically, but also feeling a little hardcore. I couldn't wait to share my story and show my battle wounds.

Tell me, have you ever had a nasty fall while running on a treadmill or outside? If so, share your story in the RunningSugar group — a place for runners to gab about gear, personal records, and the battle wounds of running.
