why i like running

it's so much lower impact than soccer. at least, lower impact for my face, which seems to attract people's elbows and the ball like it's magnetic.

Oh! So that is what happened to your face! ;-p

i've been averaging a hard blow to the face or head about once every two weeks. there was one game about a month ago where i blocked a shot on goal with my face, which was kicked so hard it actually lifted me off my feet and threw me backwards (chipping 2 teeth and making it impossible for me to close my jaw for 2 days), and then about 30 minutes later got elbowed in the back of the head hard enough to make me dizzy when i stood up afterwards.

so yes, that is what happened to my face. :)
