John Broke His Wrist Inline Skating

Inline skater John Aurentz of broke his wrist while skating on a Southern California beach bike path.

John Aurentz of Southern California broke his wrist while skating on a busy Southern California beach bike path. You may remember John's article "A Beginning Skater's Diary: From Smoker to Marathoner". John broke his wrist shortly after his first marathon, and he is sharing his x-rays and photos to remind everyone (including himself) to ALWAYS wear wrist guards when they skating. He is hoping to prevent other skaters from going through the months of pain and hardship he endured after he broke his wrist.

From John:
I just wanted to update you on my recovery. Im still writing chapter 2 of my diary and will finish it when I finish healing or when I start skating again in earnest to get ready for a race. I saw the doctor today and my wrist is healing very well. He explained that the break was very long and extremely bad. He removed one of the 4 pins and re-casted the arm for another 4 weeks. Hell probably pull the remaining 3 pins and make me wear a brace and go to therapy for another 2 to 3 months after that.

From John:
Im kind of a posterboy for wearing wrist guards. When I go to the beach now, I raise my arm and gently urge other skaters to wear wrist guards.
