endure.

you have two choices.  

admit defeat or rise about it.  

The video may take a while to load but it is well worth the wait (turn off the hd and it goes WAY faster)! Just look below and read about the day on which this story started. 

<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/21272804″>endure. trailer</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/preston”>Preston Kanak</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

“I was driving down Dewdney towards pinky road to take some photos of my bike in the sunset (ya sounds kinda..whatever) when at the corner of Dewdney and McCarthy I was struck by a woman driving a van turning north, not reducing but accelerating through the intersection. I had a green light, but so did she..she “didnt see me”
I saw it coming, tried to gun it, but only to get struck right in the middle of the Van, leaving my pocket knife in her grill.
The impact took off my foot, ripped my stomach from my spleen, fractured my left scapula, fractured my right little toe and not to mention the road rash. 
I felt the impact, rolled and tumbled, looking at my bike go flying through the intersection and into the next street, thinking crap…my paint..
Then I looked to see why my leg hurt so much and realized my foot was NOT connected. Screaming on the street, people came to my aid, the whole time I hear the driver screaming “OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, IM SO SORRY”
I remained conscious from the time of impact to the moment they took me into the O.R. to try to save my foot.. however, hearing the Doctor say, “there are probably parts of his bone still on the street” did not give me alot of confidence.

Through a lot of hard work and optimism one day soon I hope, I will be back to my old self again… scratch that.. I cant wait to be a better man.”
