    ... then it's hilarious! Too bad nobody got the event on video. icon_lol.gif

    Of all ways to get hurt, instead of crashing my bike or something cool like that, last night I got run over by one of the BMX guys practicing a trick while I was looking the other way getting my camera setup to record him doing it.

    Nobody fell and it was really kinda funny, but my food started hurting some a few minutes later. I made it on through the night and eventually rode home with moderate pain, but nothing severe.

    This morning I wake up and can't walk on it. Turns out it's a Lisfranc (midfoot) injury. Fortunately nothing's broken, but just the strain is painful as fuck.

    It speaks loud about you that you can laugh about it and not whine or play the victim over it... For that you deserve applause. You know the other guy didn't man to do it - and shit happens, so why let it screw up a positive attitude?

    If you need to borrow a walker I have one hanging in the garage from being stupid three years ago winching my 36 ft boat out of the water alone to clean the hull and ended up with my foot trapped under it for over an hour until a guy with the neighbor's lawn service noticed me waving and yelling while he mowed his yard wearing ear buds.

    Thanks! I just got a set of crutches from the local medical supply store for 35 bucks...never used crutches before, so there's definitely a fun learning curve. I kinda like how it works your triceps, which happen to be my favorite muscle group to grope workout. icon_biggrin.gif

    Nah, some of the guys ride for Redbull (as does the guy who hit me), so my compensation will come later in the form of contracts. It just sucks that I may not be able to ride with them next Thursday (local BMX bike night).
