First Big Spill

I'm sure today was the first of many, but boy did it hurt! I've nearly conquered learning my way around one of the "easiest" loops at McAllister, And during my 2nd easy loop, one of those easy descents got the best of me. I tried to veer to the right, but the roots on the left tripped me up and I found myself going over my handlebars, skidding down the dirt, and ending up with my bike on top of me. I won't lie, I cried a bit. It hurt!!
I dusted myself off, put my chain back on, and VERY SLOWLY made my way back to my car.
These pics were taken just about 30 minutes after the spill, after I had time to clean up a bit! Now that's it's been a few hours later, these bruises are REALLY gonna be good!

I think I'm ready to go again, but I may need to hire a biking buddy.
