Finally, after bad weather and being on the road for days the weather looks like it might allow me a long trek on my Trek. Recently, I passed my third anniversary of my total hip replacement and what amounted to almost 22 months of being on crutches or using a cane and being generally miserable. These last two years have been spectacular, however, and while I am not supposed to ever be a runner again the bike has helped me recapture my pre-hip injury level of fitness. So there is definitely life after hip surgery and outside of a thin white scar, I rarely remember that I am a bionic woman.
