It's been a while since my ankle and finger injury allowed me to get physical but today afterwork was my rebound back into my training. Because mercury was in retrograde nothing is ever smooth but I still managed to adapt and make it work. So here is what happened:
So it is 5:10PM and I had just pulled out of the office parking lot onto St. Francis waiting for the red light. Next thing I know, my neck snapped and I realized that I was just rear ended. Damm. I was just writing down the information of the driver that hit me when a motorcycle cop showed up and directed us off the street onto a parking lot. Luckily no damage to my vehicle but my neck felt a little wierd. Had a great conversation with Officer Otero...if you are reading this thanks for all the great ideas for sponsors for my Himalayan trip!
For all my BCMT.com friends, he's driving a Honda ST 1300!!! Can you imagine all those horses?
I hurried home to change and load up my backpack for an urban gear test. 50 pounds later, I head out to my target REI some 5 km away. It was strange walking on cement and dirt instead of my usual snow. My Pack was so heavy and just try to tie your shoe laces with it on...it's comedic for people watching me trying to keep my balance. Close to REI, I snapped this photo of the Railyard area. In the distance on the left you can see my weekend snow trek, Santa Fe Baldi and the Ski Valley....the object of my weekend adventure and workout.
