    Have you ever done something that you knew was pretty dumb while you were doing it, but still did it? Went on a pre-work ride yesterday on what is a super easy trail. I passed a boulder that had tire tracks riding up to it and some rocks placed on the opposite side to ride down and thought it would be fun to hit so I circled back to ride it. It didn’t end so well. I must not have had my ass back far enough because when I went off the left side of the rock ramp my front wheel planted and sent me otb. :bang: I landed directly on my left side. It feels like a couple of bruised or cracked ribs. Looks like I’ll be sitting on the couch for a couple of days.

    @pperrelle, a good rib episode is mandatory for truly appreciating how trouble-free those bones are most of the time. Are ya feelin it?????
