Never have i ever considered quitting... ive been tomahawked head over heals wincing in pain, but ive been fortunate enough to never have been injured on a snowboard... (knock on wood) now... on a football field? thats a totally different story... BUT it is the same mindset. Broke 3 ribs, tore my mcl, broke my arm, separated my shoulders multiple times, broke all 10 fingers, broke both hands.... Ive been doing it for 12 years, i went to college to prolong my career... 3 years from now when its all said and done will be the saddest time of my life...
If you fall get back up and try again... If it hurts take a minute to regroup, if it still hurts after a few minutes get back up finish the run, and go see firstaid... but if you can avoid it never take the ride of shame in the gurney!
