As I continue on my road to recovery, my choice of footware is vital. In the past three years, I had total hip resurfacing on both hips. Thinking I was ready to become a racer, my training began, and then came to another abrupt halt. I suffered a near fatal bike crash in which I broke both arms and three ribs.
After reconstructive surgery, I am now back to training at 100%, having lost 65 lbs. I completed an OLY distance in June and will compete in Ironman Pocono 70.3 in September. The light weight on Newton shoes provides the protection I need but not the bulk. I am also in the process of transitioning to a more efficient gait, in part for improved running, but also to be more economical, a necessity for hip preservation.
I greatly appreciate your consideration!
