Cross Sucks! Kidney Stones Suck More!


So as much as I hate cyclocross- kidney stones are worse.
After a great course put on by Gary and the FOG guys, I felt fine- until it was time to leave. Pain dropped me to my knees. Good thing we have doctors on our team- and nurses- Dr. Larry drove me home in my close to passing out state- said it sounded like a kidney stone- (Thanks to Jane too)
Later that night the pain returned- a couple of visits to the porcelain throne on my knees (yes just like cross it drove me to vomit), and off to the hospital- only 5 hours of sitting around there and it appears I may have/had have, a kidney stone.
So, I have my excuse for Sunday's cross race- what's yours?

  1. just think, once you shed the stones how much lighter you will be, you'll be flying...

  2. That's bizarre! Larry and I were talking about gout and kidney stones shortly after the A race was finished, minutes before your attack I suspect.

    Kidney stones suck. They run in my family, so I suspect I may be able to use that excuse one day, too. For now, all I can say is I suck.

  3. I'm on old man meds to help shed the stones- and wonder pain killers if needed.
