Anniversary Ride – 4 yrs

30 Jan

Every year on January 29th I finish the ride that I started on January 29, 2009 that I never finished.  My wreck was bad, but not terrible.  In fact, I thought I wrecked 3 yrs ago until I sat down to write this post!  Time flys.  My arm will never be the same and it still bothers me here and there, but I can still ride and that is what I celebrate!

Here I am, yesterday afternoon after my ride.  I had a busy day and had to squeeze it in, it would have been a lot easier to let it pass.  But I am glad I did it and got out there!

Do you cherish your runs or rides more after injury?  I know I do!
