Falling Down and Getting Back Up

Oct 03, 2006

There’s nothing quite like taking a major spill an hour into a 90 minute trail run – in the mountains – alone – early in the morning.

At least it matches my shoes and my house.  I was going downhill – pretty fast – when all of a sudden I was falling forward for no discernible reason.  My knee took most of the impact (hence the torn pants and a cut the size of a silver dollar) – quickly followed by my forearms (yup – I’ve had a lot of practice falling when running.)  A 30 second system check later and I was back up on my feet.  I shook it off and continued on my way.

Kind of like the process of creating a company.
