OK, it’s been a little over six weeks since I crashed at the Bike MS ride. I screwed up at mile 84 of the century and went over the handlebars at about 20 MPH. I didn’t break my collar bone, I shattered it. As you can see from the pictures I now have two plates and about 12 screws holding my collar bone together. I’m still hurting but things are getting better each day. I go in for my follow up on August 26th and hopefully I will get cleared to lift again.
BTW, tomorrow is number 42. Not feeling old yet. This bone break is my first and has been difficult but I keep reminding myself that “this too shall pass”.
