I am momentarily disabled. (Just a minor setback) I had to go and walk into the leg of a metal folding chair and crack the 4th toe on my left foot (dumb, dumb, DUMB!!!).
So for a few days I have to wear the above beautiful blue shoe. As they told me at the Air Force Academy Emergency Room, they are a beautiful Air Force Blue, lol. I did this Friday with a ride pending on Saturday and another the following Saturday.
Well, the ride Saturday got rained out. The Mountain Shadow Riders had their monthly chapter meeting this last Saturday and there was to be a ride to Fairplay after the meeting. There was a Ladies Run of CO planned on that day and a bunch of us planned to go and participate in some of the activities. It rained all day that day. I never heard if it got rained out or not. We've had roads/highways washout in several places in the state due to the heavy rains.
So now I am hoping for two things. First - for my foot to get well enough to ride this Saturday in the Pikes Peak H.O.G. 5 in 1 Run. It is a 400 mile run of 5 mountain passes of 10,000 feet or higher. Second - for the weather to cooperate. We have had lots of rain in the past week. It's caused flooding, washed out roads and lots of other hovac. Christine, of Christine's Corner, is also planning on participating in this.
I had been doing a mile on my cross-trainer for the last two weeks in anticipation of this ride. The doctor said there's a chance it would be okay enough by then. So, hopefully this is so. If not, there's always next year. Luckily, this isn't going to keep me off my motorcycle for long. One of the other ladies in our riding group has hurt her leg bad enough that she's out for the rest of the summer. I wish Carolee a speedy recover.
Well, Wishing Everyone a Healthy Summer,
