Hey All - this place popped in my head today. It’s nice out, folks are biking and running past my window - great triathlon weather. I had my third hip surgery in 32 months, pretty radical intervention to save the joint and get me pain relief. My doc claims I will be able to run again but I keep asking him to not encourage what we all know is a bad idea. Anyway, I have been largely bed bound for three weeks and have dozens of pics of my critters taking care of me. No clue who remembers me but I hope you are all heading into a great season of racing and enjoying the summer weather.
The last two years have been all about fixing my hip and figuring out if I can even run again. I (slowly) ran the Marine Corps Marathon in October with no pain. My doc was pseudo-happy since I need surgery on the left hip but I have no pain so that means no surgery. I've been treating life like it's house money for the moment. Smart? I think so, I know I have to have surgery again so why not do what I love until then. I'm more focused on swimming distance out of self preservation but I plan to push things a bit.
- Lose 8-10 pounds - Chicago Marathon - October 2018 - Cape May 5K swim - June 2018 - Atlantic City 70.3 - September 2018 (maybe) - Local races - Drink better scotch - Kick ass, take on a new business venture and spend more time with my boy.
I destroyed early trainer and treadmill sessions to Ash vs. The Evil Dead on Netflix. If you liked the original I was pleasantly surprised how this concept held true to all the best elements of the original.
Enjoying The Defenders now.
I think I'm four sessions in on trying to get to the end of Chappie. I'll be damned if I don't finish it.
