Four days after my last triathlon (9/9), I went out for an early morning training ride and in the process of seeking a safer course, I found a slicker one and went down hard, breaking my left collarbone. I was only 2 miles from home so Sandy came and took me to the Advent Health Altamonte ER. That culminated in surgery with Dr. Cody Hillen to pin the bones back together six days later on September 15th. The next scheduled race for me is The Great Floridian Triathlon (1/3 distance) on October 24; we'll see how I am by then. Just a small obstacle in the process we call life.
