Give me a break

22K run at Hunua yesterday. Last year I injured myself when overtaking on a narrow track and would you believe it... I did the thing again. About 28 mins into the race I decided to overtake a few runners to keep up with my mate Wattie. As I passed a girl I had to go off track and kicked a stump at full pelt. My foot gave way and I landed on one knee but was travelling at such speed that I instinctively forward rolled back into an upright position and straight into running. Amazingly I finished the race. My knee, which had gushed blood throughout the race only had a few deep cuts but I had broken two toes in the collision. Still, felt strong and finished in 2:30 something. A good rest is great.
