Just wanted to update the progress of my resurfaced hip done on August 18th. Three days ago I finished a 3000km bike ride from the very top of New Zealand to the very bottom and for the entire ride I had zero issues. In fact I’d forgot that it had even been done at all it was so good!
In November I’m off to climb Vinson, the highest mountain in … Read the rest

January 8, 2017 – In June, 2015, about three years after my HR, I did a tandem jump. It was my first skydiving experience ever. I didn’t even think twice about my hip for this. After running a marathon, skiing, playing ice hockey, long jumping, and sprinting it didn’t even occur to me that there’s be anything special to worry about for this.
Its now 30 months Post Op, [7/7/2014] and everything is just great with my hip. I have no worries or problems doing Triathlon, so long as I keep it to Standard Olympic Distance/Sprint Distances only.
