Speed Bumps on the Road to 42.2km

My last post here was all about getting back into the running groove.

A little incident on my way to work a few weeks back left me with a badly broken left arm just above the elbow. I was cycling in as usual and was hit by a car. I was knocked flying and 14 hours later I had 13 screws and two plates in my arm.

Unfortunately, that will have to wait until after my arm heals up enough that I can start running again. It’s going to be long couple of months of therapy to regain my strength and restore the range of motion that I had prior to the accident.

My ultimate goal is to get back to Vancouver in 2012 to run the BMO Vancouver Marathon for the second time. It’s 210 days from today. I’m not sure I’ll be able to do it, but I’m sure as heck going to work hard in physio with the goal of getting ready to start training again come the new year.

Until then, it’s going to be quiet around here.
