Walk Safely Please

My knees are healing nicely. Aren't they pretty? My right knee (left in this pic) is the one that is the sorest, I didn't even realize I had bruises on the left until I put on shorts yesterday. LOL
Safety is a big thing for the 3 Day. On official training walks, it is just like the actual walk. No talking on cellphones, no earbuds and no dogs.
On my own personal walks, I do walk with my dog. Morgan is a Rat Terrier and loves to go for walks with me.

As you can see, she needs the walking. LOL She gets quite pudgy during the winter, this is a pic from Christmas.

After miles and miles of walking together... She crashed me last Sunday. Something (a snake?) startled her and she shot across/into me, wrapped the leash around my legs and I went down. Hard. My left arm was tweaked, twisted and sprained by the leash and you can see the damage to my knees.

So here comes my safety reminder... Always carry your cellphone. I had to limp home the last mile because I had forgot mine.
