Good to be prepared =S

Guess what? I sprained my other ankle yesterday. We went on a trail run in Pacific Spirit Park near UBC and I was in constant chagrin dodging rocks embedded and jutting out of the dirt. All was fine and dandy until 6K and I forgot about the trail, rounding a corner, and was amidst converstion….
