Bad Road Rash

Rolling down the bike lane, I was leaning too far back and not enough forward. This allowed the board to dance left and right. I jumped off, thought I could run this one out, but at 30km/hour, I landed on my backpack and burned my elbow and left side. Hurts like hell. Went to the downtown ER but found a 4.5 hour wait. Drove to the Rockyview but didn't find any parking. I ended up going to a medical clinic and the doctor assured me I would not require a skin graft or stitches.

Ironically, I was on my way to the skate shop to buy my knee, elbow, and wrist guards. I'm taking a week off skateboarding so my wounds can heal.
