she’s a rainbow

she’s like a rainbow
coming colors in the air
oh, everywhere
she comes in colors
— rolling stones, she’s a rainbow

so i got another nice adjective added to my never-ending list of personality “assets”: imprudent. (this picture also illustrates klutzy — clutter around the leg courtesy of my husband).

the rainbow is a result of my pasty lab tan, sunburn and a bruise acquired by bumping into a parked car. why the line in the middle of the calf? i was wearing the knee brace to stabilize the kneecap and keep the aftermath of the “other klutziness” under control. why i did not apply sunscreen on my legs is beyond me. somehow i sometimes tend to think i’m immune to sunburn below the knees. go figure. it was a nice 17 miles, though. very hot, but with nice water fountain bathing rituals along the way. (nothing like pouring cold water down your back when running on a hot day). i also stopped half-way to stretch, as i found a nice shade in a grassy area. i will repeat this run on thursday, this time with sunscreen. i need to lose my right big toenail, to keep things even.

    eeesh…nasty bruise! Location of afore-mentioned bruise looks like it could have been a trailer hitch. Those are hard on the shins too.

    BTW, Stones with Alice Cooper in Halifax, NS Sept. 23rd…outdoors! There are good trails alongside the Atlantic Ocean here…
