My hip story

Hi fellow hippies!

My name is Kari and I live in beautiful Victoria BC Canada.  I had bilateral CoC hip resurfacing in Belgium on January 21, 2021.  Nothing like traveling across the pond in the middle of a pandemic for major hip surgery but I am so grateful that I did!  Prior to my surgery I had not run a pain free step in 6 years and hadn’t run at all in at least 3.  I used to be a mid pack ironman triathlete and marathon runner.  I qualified for Boston once but my last child was born 1 month before the race and injury after injury prevented me from trying again.  I have no intent of running any more marathons but I am enjoying slowly getting back to some 5-10km trail running.  It is also very nice to be able to swing my leg over my bike with ease!  This site is fantastic and I enjoy reading and being inspired by all your stories!… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
