Two years ago this day, 12/19/2016, I had my left hip replaced, anterior, at OHSU, Oregon.
Doc said “No more marathon” after the surgery. OK with me after done 45 of them already.
Saw my doc last week for 2 yr followup. X-rays look very good. Doc was pleased, so was I.
In the 2 years since, ran several 5K and 10K’s, and managed to sneaked in on Half marathon last Oct.,
near 4 months shy of my 80th B-day.
Last winter slipped and fell on hard floor in a ski lodge wearing my ski boots, but continued skiing afterward
with no problem. Will go up the mountain again with my family next week.
Doc said OK to continue running.
Old runners never quit; they just run slower.
