Ok, where does the time go; my last post was 6 months ago? I don’t think about my hips anymore. Hip dysplasia no longer defines me. Pain is no longer a daily occurrence. What remains is unwavering gratitude that I can walk without pain. Sleep without pain. Work without pain. Run without pain. Bike without pain…you get the idea. I am throwing 100% of my energy into becoming the best version of myself. In April, I ran the Fruita Desert RATS half-trail marathon with my friend and running partner, Michelle, who also had a PAO in 2012. Here is us at the top at mile 10:
In June, I did it again: Team All Screwed Up finished the Ragnar Trail Relay in Snowmass, CO in just over 25 hours. I ran 14.5 miles with over 3400 feet elevation gain. Here are some pics:
So that is what has been going on: running, working, some travel. Hopefully moving off the Front Range soon, I need a change of scene. Life is too short to sit around and wait for an ideal time to do stuff. I am in the mode of “just do it.” I’ll pop on in once in awhile to give an update, but in closing, I’ll just say its been a hell of a ride and I am glad to be on the other side of the hip dysplasia journey. There is life after PAO surgery!
