Here we go

August 16, 2007 - the day I was diagnosed with a stress fracture of the femur neck - the day I found out I would not be running for at least 3 months...
Since then I have had a follow up MRI that shows the stress fracture is healed, but I still have a labral tear in the same hip, but I have been cleared for running short distances and allowed to gradually increase mileage. The ortho surgeon doesn't recommend any more marathoning, but couldn't say conclusively that would have caused the fracture so he left it all basically up to me.
Moving on, I did my first run of 1 mile on November 26, 2007 - it felt great. I continued on that week with runs of 1 mile each day. Since then I have increased in mileage doing runs of 2 - 4 miles at a time with one run being 4.6 miles.
