Thank You Hip Runner for Hope

I was diagnosed with AVN in January 2019 with RTHR in June 2019.

as an avid runner (road and trails), I thought running was over when first diagnosed.  This was the first group I found that gave me hope this was not the case.

I stayed strong prior to surgery, still running 20 miles a week right up to surgery, even with collapsed hip  then started running 5 1/2 weeks after

Now 7 months I have run 2 Spartans, 2 5 Ks 1/2 marathon trail race and up to 40 miles a week  I am currently training for my 1st Boston Marathon in April 2020 after qualifying in Chicago prior to AVN diagnosis

thanks again

      Impressive Comeback! We are glad you found us. Keep listening to the hip and give it a rest when it tells you to. Every day will get better and better and eventually, it won’t need rest days. Good luck with Boston!

      So glad to hear you didn’t give up and you’ve followed your passion, with pretty good success so far. Hope your training goes well for Boston and look forward to reading your race report. I was thinking of doing it this year but decided on Big Sur instead.
