Funny quote

"The moment I say I want to put a number on my chest, that’s when I start saying I accept the risk of injury,” Dr. Foster said. “It’s a decision people make and I think it’s a good one. But you’ve got to accept it. Training is not totally innocuous."

From: Want to Go Faster? You Need a Trainer (NYT)

Yup, I accepted the risk of injury. As a result, today I am sporting a lovely waterproof cast in a shade of blue to go with my eyes. Now If I can just manage to keep from killing myself on stairs or while driving the car left-footed, I will be in good shape.

Going from crutches and two feet to crutches and one foot is a whole new ballgame.
