At the parkour meet tonight I vaulted a fence and came down on a sprinkler head.  Imagine jumping and landing all your weight on the side of your ankle.  Bobo said it looked like my shoe came off.  I went down hard, didn’t cry, am furious with myself. 

Sure it’s just bad luck BUT I had a rule: I wasn’t attending any more Wednesday meets until I could actually keep up because Wednesdays are when the big boys come out.  But I broke my own rule and now am completely immobile.october 1 2008
