It was 7 months as of the 15th of June. (that I had my hip resurfacing with Dr. Su) I celebrated by doing the Mt Washington running race on
Saturday the 16th. just a 7.6 mile jaunt up Mt Washington in New Hampshire with a 4650 ft ascent. Finished in 1:43:32 Good for 243 pl out of 900+ other crazies doing this. It was 13 minutes slower than my time in 1999 but I guess the mountain has gotten steeper in the last 8 years.
I don’t consider myself in the same
categories as Corey or Floyd, so all of you out there wondering if there is a running life for mere mortals after getting your hip resurfaced I say “get out there and run”.
For my 1 year anniversary I am doing the NYC marathon next year. I might hang out with Jack Lalanne and pull a boat across the San
Francisco bay with my teeth.
It feels good when the pain is gone. Best wishes to all who have had this and those doing it in the future.
