I am sure you are wondering why that is notable. Well, glad you asked. When it has been three years since I was able to do that, today was incredible. The knee replacement 10 months ago works. Granted it wasn’t very far but considering I have had to learn to play “frogger” when crossing the street, this was “hooge”. It’s going to be awhile before I run a marathon, especially considering I never have, but even just two laps around the Princeton Club gym felt like I had just completed one.
So one running step forward for me, one giant step for artificial joint replacement. To all you knee replacement patients still going through the rehab, stay focused and optimistic, there’s a race waiting for you even if it will be just against yourself.
