My accident and surgery have been a great shock to me and I'm not use to this sitting around.
I have spent my life cycling and running on a daily basis. To be told that I would not be walking without crutches for 6 weeks and not exercising for 3 months was a terrible reality check to the seriousness of my accident.
It means I have a lot of time to occupy myself in my thoughts and this can be a problem to me as exercise has provided in the past an escape from a far too active and irrational mind.
I intend to read, write more music and be a bit more on to the blogging. The next 6 weeks could be a time of growth as I re-evaluate my life so far and where I'm heading.
I have a lot to be thankful for!
I live with a lovely lady, Lea who cares deeply for me and is always there for me. I know I have a positive and happy future ahead.
I have her two girls Bianca and Caitlyn who need stability in their lives and I know I can be there for them.
I have had a wonderful running career with many successes and hopefully many more to come.
I belong to a supportive cycling group, Kapiti Cycling Club and I'm enjoying my newly found love for cycling.
Although I have had some dark moments recently I know that with all the love and support around me I will continue to be the best I can be, continue to celebrate my talents and enjoy the interests that make me who I am.
