I enjoy summer. I have activities I like to do. I like the heat, the sweat, the possibilities.
When the middle of August rolls around I am reminded that the clock is ticking and the last hot day, session on the river, bike ride in only Lycra, may be at hand.
I stubbed my toe wading in the river a few days ago – a minor injury – but one so painful it brought a limp to my walk.
I’ve since learned that riding a bike is fine. I suspect the toe will be improved in a few days and I just need to chill out.
Considering the mayhem of recent weeks/months, I count my blessings and am grateful for having been able to get outside a bit.
I’m going to ice the toe down and figure I’ll tape it up in a few days if the wind blows strong.
