This past weekend I was in south Florida visiting a bunch of my old friends.  Typically the weekend consists of lots of running around, eating, gabbing, shopping and going to the beach.  It's always super fun!  However, somewhere usually during this trip there is some sort of drama.  I'll just do a quick recap of last year and then followup with this year.

2011 - Last year I was nearing the end of training for a race.  The weather was rather dreadful that weekend and my friend (Dawn) said she'd take me to the gym.  On Saturday morning we woke up early to head to the gym.  As usual, I have about 14 things in my hands, go to step on the treadmill and didn't realize that someone had left it on!!!  (at a very, very slow pace)  I totally ate it, fell on my left side, tucked into a ball and it spit me off.  Surprisingly I didn't drop anything!  So I got up, turned off the machine (while irritated and not really that embarrassed for one it was quite empty in there and two no one knows me at this gym) and told myself that if I wasn't bleeding I was still going to run.  i still ran.  Once I was done running I realized I had quite a few large bruises on my left hip, side of my knee and some burn marks on my shin and my left wrist.  good times...

2012 - This year I was sitting at the beach with Jenny (Dawns roommate).  Apparently they are just trouble!  Anyways, I was stung by a bee in the rib cage!  ARGH!  I've had some bad reaction to stings / bites in the past so off to the Urgent Care we went.  They fixed me right up, but it sure did put a damper on the afternoon!
