Saddened to say that the fracture has gotten worse. At 3 weeks, it looked like it was coming together, but commuting into work and walking ~11k steps per day after the soft tissue damage healed, moved the fracture out of place. It was really deceptive because I wasn’t in much pain at all. It’s tough when everyone’s rushing to and from work and you feel like you need to move quicker. Doctor said to limit my steps to 3k. Talk about a difference.

Thankfully am NOT at the cutoff for surgery and my risk of arthritis is MUCH lower now than it originally was because the part of the fracture by the joint looks a lot cleaner than it was. Onwards and upwards.

Two weeks until the next x-ray. Likely off the bike another month at least. Oh well, more time to work on upper body.

Tunnel vision, sort of?

“Cause boredom got a new best friend.” Counting down the days until I can get back on the bike. Doing my best to respect the recovery process though.

🐻 mountain foliage. It’s crucial to get out of the concrete jungle and just breathe in the Autumn air. 💨 🍁

Amazing to think how this used to be a station on the old commuter line from Putnam County. Just one of the many signs on the North / South County Trail.

After sobering news earlier in the week on the West Side Greenway, it was so nice to watch thousands take on the NYC marathon. The diverse crowd: from elite runners to recreational athletes looking for a challenge. The marathon truly embodied the spirit of the community.

Missing this view on the way to Wed. night cyclocross practice. Week 3 post-injury, a little less than halfway there to begin riding on the trainer. Bone is healing well based on the latest X-ray!

Definitely recommend circumnavigating Manhattan at least once. Diverse scenery, beautiful this time of year, as you head towards the top of Manhattan.

Looking back through some old shots and found this gem. SF level fog enveloped the GWB In Feb. of this year.

Rainy in NYC today. Once my broken bone heals, I’m inspired to learn how to rock climb - @thecliffslic is pretty close, to start before venturing outdoors.

Take the path less travelled by.

BCycle was the way to get around!
Would love to see an expansion of the network to less centralized locations, and some 2nd gen bikes like we’ve seen with Citibike.

Sprinkling in some Chicago pictures from this past weekend. The content is flowing!
In terms of the injury, road rash has pretty much healed, and the swelling / bruising is subsiding on my foot. Still can’t put weight on it, but the air boot helps to get around! X-ray next week to see how break is healing.

Rounding back towards town. The snow melted in a couple days. Didn’t realize Boulder gets 300+ days of sunshine per year!

Awesome dirt roads around the reservoir, mountains as your backdrop 👍🏻

The Cherry Creek multi-use path is convenient for quickly crossing through the city.
