Abrupt end to the tri season

My ride ended tonight at the trauma ward. I was brought there in an ambulance as I was a participant in a bike vs. car accident (I played the part of the bike rider). I have some major road rash and broken ribs. I never lost consciousness but my bike is in pieces.

I hurt a lot. Tomorrow will probably suck. The day after too.

It could have been worse.

Wow, bike vs car is always very scary. So sorry to here this news and OUCH - your poor bike! Rest well and heal. I'm sure you'll come back strong and whole again soon.

So sorry to hear about the bike vs. car but glad to hear that you were lucky. Though, that's a crummy way to end the season. Hope you have a smooth recovery, and I look forward to continuing to follow your blog. Best wishes!-J
