A picture is worth 1000 words:
I completed my first triathlon.
And I went on my first Mountain Bike Ride. And fell.
This is my arm. I actually fell on my handle bars which bent vertical. The real injury, which required minor surgery, can only be viewed by medical personnel, my husband, and Kelli Butenko. (Luckily I was riding with an EMT.)
I’m sticking to road bikes for a little while. (Because it’s really hard to ride a mountain bike whose handlebars are vertical.) And I’ll be resting for a few more weeks. Then I’m sure I’ll look back at all of this and LAUGH.
