Morning Wreck - (literally)

So this morning was the start of my plan for Jake and I to bike for exercise every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Apparently it was also the first warning that maybe I might end up in an ER because of this in the future. Just kidding - I hope not. Anyway, for my local blogging friends who know the area, we had just come down the Aviary overpass towards Goynes Elementary when Jake decided to take a left turn onto Deersprings. He took the corner really fast and I started to get nervous. The genetic factor that makes everyone in China so agile and coordinated on a bicycle has skipped me entirely. Of course, I slowed down a little, turned the corner, saw a metal sign pole, and promptly ran into it. Thank goodness the force of the impact threw me off the bike and I somehow managed to stay on my feet, but I'm pretty sure that I received a pretty good bruise in my pelvic area. All of this occurred within the first 15 minutes of our workout, so after another 45 minutes of riding, I'm definitely having issues with walking. Anyway, there happened to be this old couple that was walking on the opposite side of the street when my wreck occurred, and I feel good knowing that I probably made their day with my morning "blooper." Who needs to watch "America's Funniest Home Videos" when you can take a morning walk around Aliante.

Feel free to laugh all you want. I actually wanted to post this as soon as I got home so that I could put a little smile on everyone's face this morning. I wish someone was taking a picture or a video. It was hilarious. I was laughing so hard tears came out - Jake didn't know if I was crying or laughing or what.

Wow!! I wish I could have seen that. I'm glad you weren't hurt, but thanks for the laugh.

I hope your pelvic area heals. I am giggling in the inside just imagining it, sorry. I do hope it wasn't to serious and your recovery is as swift as your bike was before the pole came into play:)

Once I wrecked on rollerblades into a parked car. Oh and there was only a slight gradient to the street. I'm not good on anything that moves so we would probably be the worst duo on wheels:) It would make great comedy though:p
