helping Jonah on the monkey bars
the playground on Sunday evening when it was a little chilly
When I was at the dentist I was telling the hygienist about how I had chipped one of my teeth on a safety pin after running the Rudolph 6K back in December. I had eaten half a multi-grain breakfast bar before the race and stuck the rest of it in my coat pocket. After the race I took off my race bib and put the safety pins in my pocket and one managed to get stuck in the breakfast bar. When I took a bite later on, I heard and felt and nice big crunch. Definitely something I would do! It was a good thing the safety pin stayed closed or I could have been in a lot of pain.
And thankfully the chipped part is on the inside of my mouth so no one can see it, and the dentist says I don't need to do anything about it since it's not bothering me. The hygienist happens to be a runner as well so she and I got to talking about various races that we've done. It got me more excited for my half in April and for the American Odyssey Relay in May. Lots of fun running coming up!
