Laid Up: The Tale of the Almost “Bummer”

“It’s broken” she said. “It’ll probably take 6 – 8 weeks” she said. I felt my heart sink. “But…what about skiing?” I asked, with almost a tear in my eye. The ER Doc gave me a shrug and said, “get a bone scan and let’s go from there, but for now, no weight bearing”. Few hours…

I’m Fine, Thanks.

Those of you who know me well, know that it was only a matter of time before I put whats going on in my life into writing or on social media. The last 6 months of my life have been an earthquake of changes. Some good, some hard and some unresolved. But I’m fine, thanks….

Conquering the Cold Stuff

This week I finally got to try ice climbing! This has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. I’ve rocked climbed outdoors for the last 6 years and this was the next necessary move! My friend Steve was awesome enough to lend me his tools and some tips for my first…
