Hi I am a female runner of 18 years with the last 5 of those years as an ultra runner. I first reported niggles with my hips in my early twenties but thought nothing of it. It wasn't until in 2004 when the wheels fell off on a training run for a then half marathon that I had investigations. It transpired that I had osteoarthritis in both my hips with the left being mild and the right worse still. Fortunately incorporating a lot of gym work I was able to continue running very successfully as a recreational runner until I'd say the last 5 years. I have had the great pleasure of completing within the UK and Ireland marathons, 50k's, 50 milers, 100k's, 100 milers and 24 hour races. I hope to return to my love of running carefully o f course by May and hope to take part in the Snowdonia marathon in North Wales at the very end of October.
