|Even a short hike on a Sunday afternoon can be wonderful|
Six years and two months ago, I was out for a sunny afternoon bike ride when a car suddenly turned in front of me. I smashed straight into the passenger side, flew up over the roof, hit the trunk and landed flat on my back on the pavement. The damage total was a severely broken forearm that required two metal plates and twelve screws to repair, a broken collarbone and shoulder blade, and six broken ribs. Ouch.
|Five days before I was hit by a car, and not a care in the world|
|I had to work hard to get back the strength I needed to cross country ski|
