I am a novice runner who was training for the 2012 NYC Marathon after losing a considerable amount of weight. Unfortunately upon the creation of this blog in 2011 I began to experience soreness in my right hip. After doing extensive web research I decided to seek the help of an orthopedic doctor. An x-ray determined my diagnosis as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). FAI is a condition where the femoral head causes friction with the acetabulum. The abnormally shaped femoral head caused a tear in my labrum. I took some time off from my workouts – and indefinitely put my marathon aspirations on hold. As I put my training on hold, I elected for hip arthroscopic surgery in December (2011). By May I am expected to return full time to working out and training. But there is the matter of surgery #2 on the opposite hip. I know in the long run this is what I need.

The road to the marathon has taken me through some of the up’s and down’s of training. But when it’s all said and down, I will cross the finish line in Central Park and the final chapter will be complete. Join me for the ride of a lifetime. We will cross the finish line together.
