Lucky Dude. I was out on my daily mountain bike ride thru the hills the other day. I was on a single track when a lizard appeared running below my bike. I went right to avoid him and hit a rock that stopped me cold. In less than a second, I went over the handle bars and face planted with all my body weight on my face. I was stunned and in shock and bleeding from multiple cuts on my face. I have a nice road rash under my nose that makes me look a bit like Hitler. I got up and rode home slowly bleeding the whole way. Today, my face is looking better but it will be a week or so before healing. I realized I could have been killed or paralyzed very easily. I am very grateful that it was not worse. It's amazing to think how our lives can turn on a dime. As I get older, I realize how cautious I have become. Injuries can devastate and take so long to heal. This accident made me think how lucky I am and that I need to be even more careful out there. And you should too!
