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”.

This year WE go the distance!

That’s the theme of my 2014 fundraising campaign for Bike MS with Team Left Hand. It’s easy! The more I raise, the more I run! You know you want to make me run a marathon after riding a century.  What will it take?  $10,000 in fundraising to benefit the National MS Society in their fight against a disease that leaves people unable to ride or run.  So let’s do it for them, this year WE go the distance!
