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!
