Three Broken Bones

Before you all start to get concerned, this post is NOT about me (whew).

Last weekend was weird. And then it got even weirder.

I ran into one of Coach B’s former students (she is in college now), who was back at our rink for a few short days. I had just seen her the day before, but on the following day, she was in crutches. I asked her what happened, and she said that she fractured her foot. Apparently, she had injured herself earlier in the summer but didn’t get it checked out until that day. This was broken bone #1.

The next day, I got a message from a skating friend. She said that she ran through her freestyle program that morning and it went well. After the run-through, she attempted a jump and fell down. She had it looked at, and she fractured a bone in her leg. That would be broken bone #2.

The day after that, my other skating friend sent me a note saying that her boyfriend broke his collarbone during the day. Friends, that is broken bone #3.

So yes, 3 broken bones by 3 skating friends/significant others. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that everyone heals quickly.
