(11 stitches)
the worst thing at the doctor's was the anti-biotic shot to the rear end, and was by far the most painful thing of the whole event.
anyways, i couldn't have picked a better group to go and hurt myself with, everyone was very helpful (not sympathetic, cause they knew i deserved it) but a big thank you to everyone involved.
Good to know that a gaping vagina sized gash on your arm didn't keep you from riding. Of course you couldn't put any elbow pads on today either because they would have gone right over your wound. Hopefully you took it easy on some of the harder intermediate stuff today. You are truly an animal.
