March Forward

Six years ago this month, I joined the Over The Bars Scar Club (for the the third time in my life) when some teenage boys knocked a fence post down right in front of me. I thought the cast on my arm was the worst thing that happened, except for a broken camera filter.

Three months later, after successfully but painfully completing Ride the Rockies, I learned I had also crushed a disc in my back. It took a LONG time, but I finally was able to get back on my bike and work up to full-day rides again.

A year ago this month, I got taken off my bike (and my camera and my crochet hook and my computer mouse) again because it was discovered I have two collapsed discs in my neck.

I'm back up to 25 miles on my bike now, and I can crochet, mouse, take pictures and even run 1/8th of a mile. I won't stop until I'm stronger than I've ever been.

Ooh woo hoo
Ooh woo hoo


  1. The best way to be. Keep on a going and getting stronger. One just has to remember not to over do it and cause the injury to flare.

    1. What!?!?! Are you reading my mind?!? :) More sore today than I’ve been all year, probably due to some work in the garden last weekend...

  2. You go girl!

    And ditto to Pat's comment above. Be careful too. :)

    1. Thanks, Sue! Gotta be like you and just keep going, even when it's tough!
