War Wounds Ahead! Please Stay to the Right!

For some reason all of my recent injuries have occurred on my right side. The only injury that has not been on the right was my tailbone! Which still hurts!

Here is a recap of the recent events:
  • Bashed up right shin - Last fall's spectacle ride (and fall) at Gambrill
  • Strained right thigh muscle - Second fall on the Gambrill ride
  • Large painful blisters on the right heal - Ice skating - twice
  • Slightly sprained right ankle - Ultimate Frisbee - my ankles recover pretty quickly
  • Sprained right wrist - Bunny hopping over a log at Colt's Neck
  • Road rash on right calf - Less than graceful Car Avoidance Technique in the Wakefield parking lot last night.
  • Road rash on right forearm and elbow - Same Car Avoidance event last night
  • Blood drawing scrapes and punctures on right forearm - Raspberry/blackberry thorns at Colt's Neck.
  • Re-injured sprained right wrist - Bunny hopping the Same Stupid Log at Colt's Neck tonight!
Speaking of the Colt's Neck ride tonight, it turned out to be only me and DT! Luckily for me, this was DT's third night of riding in a row including last night's 30+ mile road ride. We had a great pace and completed the loop, counter-clockwise in just over an hour. That's a fun trail on the single-speed. I finally cleared a couple of climbs that usually beat me up.

If you're not bleeding, you're not riding hard enough.

Hey Gaz,

Hmmm, futbol, eh? Have not done that since pre-teen years. Love the sport though.

Yeah, the flowers turned out nice - they're actually telephoto (some over 300mm) I wish I had a true macro lense. Nothing post-production done to them other than a few crops.
