Screw 6/6/06... I shoulda' been worried about 6/7!
On the way back, a nice-sized stick found its way into my front wheel. Luckily I built it with brass and the stick broke first. It's amazing how strong spokes are! The wheel came out of it just fine, despite the insane sound of the whole thing as it was happening.
My thumb is super swollen and sore this morning, but I'm pretty sure nothing is broken. I'm going to lay low for a couple of days and see how it shakes out.
You never realize how vital your thumbs are until you hurt one of 'em... I'd say my race at Ponca has been put into some question by this little turn of events. That'd be a big bummer if I wasn't able to race - I've been looking forward to Ponca ever since the race at Platte ended.
Have a great Thursday, whatever you end up doing!
