2006 Season is Over

Should have followed my own advice and excercised greater caution.

Fell off the bike on Monday night and broke my clavicle. I also damaged my new Giro helmet, and am thankful for that piece of styrofoam protecting my noggin.

Today as the orthopaedist was explaining things to me, I fainted. Funny since I was fine for days - with the pain and everything else. I guess I just couldn't swallow her explaining everything to me while looking at the x-rays.

Her and an assistant had to lift me onto an exam table, propping my legs up with pillows, and the assistant applied cold compresses until I regained my senses a few minutes later. Fainting is not fun.
