WTG signing up for a new season:) My husband played rugby in college. He is now in to karate, along with our two children. He broke his back (compressed burst fracture in the lumbar spine) in November of '99. learned how to walk all over again, rehabbed as an inpatient following reconstructive surgery, and then as an outpatient for quite some time. I try to let some of that determination rub off on me, but I'm SOOOOO not athletic! LOL! I did take an hour hike through the snowy woods last Wednesday, but today it's -25F with the wind chill factor. Not a good day to be outdoors!
