    Default Not the day we were planning - bowing out of BAFS 2019

    Whole family was heading up the MBT, coming home from parent teacher conferences. Gremlin2's slipped off her seat, I think her feet hit the ground, and she went over the handlebars and landed on her face. ER at Children's has put her two front teeth back in, which I had no idea they could do. She's maybe the toughest kid I've ever met, takes after her great grandmother. I'm not sure whether it's better or worse that her hands were in the Bar Mitts so she broke her fall with her chin instead of her wrists.

    Compounding the fun times - as I rushed to hop off my bike to help her, I felt like something hit the back of my leg - not confirmed yet, but they think I ruptured my Achilles.

    So it looks like I'm off a bike for a while. Still happy to help with the online coordination of my team, but I'm not going to be doing any riding.

    Oh wow, I'm so sorry Jon. That really sucks. I hope you and Gremlin 2 heal fast. Let us know if you need anything, and give Gremlin 2 a hug from all of us.

    That's a terrible day! Really sorry to hear.
    I believe that ruptured Achilleses do not prohibit one from drinking beer.
