After the hospital I realized just how entirely lucky I am. I went home and found everything on my body was shredded. My helmet took all of the impact as I am pretty sure I remember landing on my head. My clothes are shredded. My arm warmers and leg warmers shredded. Even my shoes are destroyed. But I'm walking--a little slowly--but still walking.

Almost a Ghost Bike
Yesterday I was riding down White Rock Road for a little warmup before I turned onto Scott Road. I looked over my shoulder and saw an open road. I looked over again and there was an SUV flying into me at 50 mph. The SUV hit me and I remember being upside down and in the air. I watched the side of the road coming at me thought to myself to just roll. In some insane adrenaline I popped up and started hopping around to check for broken bones and make sure I was still alive. The car went through a fence and far into a field. I was hopping around I realized I had no major injuries. My leg was really injured from being hit my the car but nothing was broken severly. I grabbed my bike out of the road and waited for the paramedics. The driver of the SUV never got out of the car.
