Yep..... it's just like that. Smile and bring on the good life.

My back still "ain't right". I think I might have torn a ligament or something. It's not this often that I am so uberconscious of my... well, my ass actually, to be quite to the point! :)
... Jeez. I have not yet, in all of my years of racing, had an injury like this from a crash. As a matter of truth... I usually don't crash. I think I play a safe game out there. Even though I am known to be a bit crafty and risky on the bike, I believe I have the skills to back it up, and I'm not afraid to say that. Nope. Not afraid.
I may not be the quickest up all them hills, but I am not scared for high speeds, tight spaces, and tricky spots. Truth is... I love it. But...this time, it has gotten the best of me. I think I really am injured. I still stick by my story that there wasn't any dangerous riding going on when that crash happened.... just a little tight riding...which led to some bumping and tangling...and then some of us met the pavement ---in a most intimate way. Ahem.
Damn... that's part of the game though hey...
Well... even though I am having issues.... I'm still smiling ---and still thankful for my rockin life. Hell yep.

Sorry to hear you're still hurting. I was hoping you'd be at 100% by now. I fractured and "sprained" the tailbone at NVGP (Mankato) and I'm having ALOT of trouble training through this. Very frustrating at the SLOW progress.
Hang in there. :( H. Labance
