QUICK HEALING AFTER BIKE CRASH

Last summer, just before beginning a short triathlon—swim, bike, run—my buddy and I (both Christian Scientists) quietly repeated "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health (see p. 468). Repeating that statement helped me focus on God as I started the swim. I wanted to maintain a continual awareness of His ever-presence moving me through the whole race, rather than relying on physical strength and speed.

After the swim, I decided to catch up some lost ground on my bike by picking up speed at Mile 7, on a long sloping downhill. Halfway down I saw that my speedometer read 36 mph. Then I noticed a biker stopped directly in my path. All I had time to do was yell, "Hey!" before I hit him straight on and went flying in the air. The next thing I knew I was on my back in the middle of the road. I was so shocked that I didn't know what to think or feel.
