What this really means is:

I NO LONGER HAVE TO RIDE INSIDE!!!! YEAH. No golf or swimming until January, but for now, riding is OK!!!

Dr. Ryu said my range of motion is excellent, and that it is safe to run/bike, but no weightlifting quite yet. And no crashing! I think I can handle that..

And just in time for the long Thanksgiving weekend!!!!!!!!

See you out there on the roads....

I guess I have to get a new helmet.

Ciao!!

Hi Kimberly,

So glad you are able to ride again outside! Nice page here as well. I'm impressed with the Mechanical Engineering degree. A couple of my long neglected spaces:
