Your Only Limitation is Your Strength and Fear

2017 was a tough year for me personally. On

June 7, I was out for a training ride on my brand

new five-day old dream bike, preparing for what

would have been my ninth MS Cape Cod Getaway

Ride in a few weeks.

A minute after passing Strategies offices I was

struck by a van that shot across the road into my

path. Next thing I knew, I was being lifted into an

ambulance. My left hip socket was fractured, three

ribs in my upper back were fractured and my upper

sternum crushed. I was in excruciating pain.

Yes, I did ask if my bike was okay. (I tried to wait

but couldn’t help myself.) A few days later I found

out that it died in the crash. If you ride a bike, you

understand.

I had surgery on June 13 to fix my fractured hip

socket with a plate and eight screws. 20 days in the

hospital and three months on crutches was an or-

deal I never want to repeat.

Dec. 18, I had a checkup and X-Ray. The surgeon

said he sees no issues whatsoever followed by, “Your

only limitation is your strength and fear.”Grateful.

I’m sharingmy accident story because there were

some personal lessons and profound insights that all

owners need to know.
