2X Ironman triathlete, competitive cyclist living in Southern California. I started triathlon in my early 40s and wasn't really a runner before that. I was having hip pain in late 2020 and assumed it was a hip flexor issue and/or torn labrum. Proceeded to train for my 3rd IronMan - was setting all kinds of PRs but pain continued to get worse. 3 weeks before race I was diagnosed with two stress fractures and told I would need hip replacement because in 6 months my osteoarthritis had progressed so quickly that I was bone on bone. My THR will be in June 2022 and I am so happy to come across this group. Thank you.
