Living Life On The Edge (Of Blades)

During the begining of Thursday's practice, I skated a little to close to the skater in front of me and all of a sudden I had a speedskating blade in my shin as she kicked back for her crossover. I am super thankful though because the cut went through all layers of tissue above my muscle but not into it, which would have made the cut way more serious. I got stitches, took the day off, bought shin guards, skated a tough practice the next morning and lifted weights afterwards without the cut being irritated at all. So it looks like I'll be OK and...it's going to be a sweet looking scar!
