I broke my back riding this past season. I had a few days in the hospital with time to think about how much I almost lost in my life and how badly it could have been.

It made me think about the kind of reckless riding I'd been doing and the poor shape I'd let myself get in.

I didn't consider quitting but I did re-evaluate my priorities within snowboarding. Basically I want to ride until I die so I needed to get myself in physical shape again and get a fresh start with riding; focusing on correct progression rather than hucking myself over everything in order to progress super fast.
