HEREYour 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
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.
