How’d the ride go?

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”.
