Back in the Days....

Well, I don't have too much to update on....I'm making progress, so that's good. I can't remember if I ever fully updated about my hip situation, in case I didn't here you go....the MRI showed a small tear in the labrum, so no surgery, just more PT. My ankle is coming along, I'm now able to do the stairmaster (for 5 minutes)!
Not running is still totally sucking, not going to races is sucking even more, missing out on all the fun is sucking the worst! However, I am able to walk around without being in total pain and I've even progressed to cute flats instead of sneakers for a "night out"!
As for the title of this post "Back in the Days"... I came across some old photos of me when I was about 13-15 years old. I used to be totally into horses and extremely competitive at horse shows, traveled all around to tons of them. Anyway, below are 2 pictures from "Back in the Days!"
The first one is me on my horse "Addison", he was so awesome! I had him from the time I was about 12 up to around my junior year in college.
The second picture is me on a horse named "SuperNatural", I started showing him when my horse (Addison) got hurt and was retired. This horse was totally cool too....

Just thought these were kind of cool pics and figured that most of my "blog friends" only know 2 things about me....I ran a marathon, and now I'm injured! So now you know a little bit more! LOL!

Very cool pics! I'm so glad that there will be no surgery - just more PT (and yay for cute flats!)

That's cool! horses are dangerous and fun. my wife's family has tons of them. they do more redneck stuff like rodeo's and barrell racing, though.

Hey, cool pictures! Racing horses? That's pretty unique!

Thanks for the update though. I was totally wondering what's up with your hip/ankle. Sorry that the rehab/PT is going so slow but at least you're showing some signs of progress!

Way to hang tough. We're all cheering for you!
