Shirley got hit (me too)

This isn’t going to be a long post going through a play by play recap of a car hitting us. There are just a few things you need to know.

  • It was not an accident. The car hit us. It was going the wrong way in our lane. It was impossible to avoid. It his us head on.
  • I am totally fine, even though my head hit the ground and my foot was pinned under the car. Miracle, or a great helmet and awesome shoes? Either way, I got some scrapes and bruises and that is totally it. The paramedics said I was good to go.
  • Shirley did not do so well. Did I mention the car hit us head on? The list of damage was enough that the insurance company gave me a decent sized check.

I’ll miss Shirley. She took me to many great places. She took me to work, on centuries, and just tooling around town. I was even planning on taking her places she was never meant to go, like gravel races going hundreds of miles. She did everything I asked of her and more. RIP old friend.
