I'm so sorry to hear about your injury, John!! I hope that now (a bit over a month later...), you are feeling like a bit of healing is happening. Hopefully you'll soon be racing once again-- you have a very inspiring story!
I have been AFK for the past few days. Saturday morning, while running in The Race For The Cure, I tripped and made a rather spectacular fall with close to ten thousand people watching. We were running over a bridge and I tripped on a raised portion of an expansion joint. Initially there was lots of blood from my right knee and my left hand hurt… a lot. Later, the doctor told me that the sports watch I wear on my left wrist actually kept me from breaking my wrist at it acted as a back stop when my wrist went back. I was angry when all this happened because I was at roughly the two mile mark, the rest of the race was downhill and I was pumped. Suddenly I am sitting on the side of the road with all of this energy and no place to put it. The long and short of it is a sprained wrist and my knee, they believe is just bumped and bruised. I am having an MRI on it shortly to make sure. It’s a bit hard to type and being left handed makes it even more of a challenge. I’m going to get a wrist brace on my way home from the MRI. Just thought I’d update everyone. Have a good Monday.
