Got in a 14 mile run at Charoleau Gap with TTR on Saturday. 3 miles from the finish (I was on schedule for a 17 miler), I slipped while negotiating a rocky, downhill spot, which I was walking at the time. I put my hand out behind me to break my fall and I heard the snap of my wrist. Thanks to Joel, the rest of TTR, and a good samaritan on a 4-wheeler, I got back to the trailhead, and received an ambulance ride to NW Medical Center in Oro Valley. I spent the night, and had surgery on my fractured radius bone (sitting at a 45 degree angle) first thing this morning. Before surgery:One metal plate and 9 screws later, I'm home resting. Very painful. Doc says no running for 6 weeks. Looks like Tucson Marathon is out, as is pacing Troy at JJ100.
More later about the run when I can type again. Thanks to everyone for all of your support and love, especially my friend Jason, who came to the hospital to take care of me until Kenny could unexpectedly get back home Saturday night (he came home this week, but was headed back up for a second load).
Acceptance is difficult today, but I'm hanging in there. I feel blessed to have such wonderful friends and family.
