Post 2 of 2. • Here is the muscle loss and the pre-op. • Life has been hectic over the last six years. Poor decisions, injuries, disappointments, low places, surgeries, hints of success and oscillations of setbacks. • Today I want to watch all my bridges burn from the last six years. I have set out on a path that will be my best me. The future is bright, the future is steady, the future is exciting and the way there seems more clear than ever. • I am not angry or upset with the low points of the past few years. I am stronger for it and have a clear vision of who and where I want to be. • Finding the lows of life offers full vision upward. It offers another chance to reprioritize, reset, remotivate and plan. 📋 • Here’s to the future! 🍻 • #triathlete | #triathlon | #swimbikerun | #skier | #skiing | #running | #runner | #meniscustear | #trilife | #triathletes | #preop | #cyclist | #cyclistsofinstagram | #argueyourlimits | #kneehab | #ski | #run | #forwardnotstraight | #fns |

🏨Just hanging out with bae 💍, all drugged-up in post-op 🔪🛠Blessed having our good friend ✌️ as one of my PACU nurses. • 1 of 2 • The injury background: As a level III+ skier, I have always taken calculated risks when skiing however this injury was honestly not a result of my ineptitude but rather of poor grooming at a local hill. A man-made mound of snow (read “ice") was leveled out before the biggest powder day last December. Unfortunately they left some large boulders of ice on the groomed edge of a black-diamond headwall. They were then buried in the drifting 12-14” of powder. I hit one of the boulders at full speed and my skis flew off. Fortunately, my helmet protected my head as I flew headfirst, face-up, down the headwall onto the ensuing ice-boulder field. My landing struck my mid-lower back on another block of ice. Apparently my intense back pain masked the fact that I tore my right medial meniscus. • When I tried skiing again, two weeks later, my knee felt weak but not unusable. I also tried running but it was definitely sore. I skied the rest of the season with caution. • When Spring came, I was unable to run more than a mile. Cycling with any power was painful. I decided to continue to rest it for the Spring and hopefully have it ready for summer sessions and maybe be in shape for late Summer triathlon or cycling race. With effort I could run painlessly but the knee would be very painful for several days after. • I took the rest of the Summer off from training, got thirty face-cord of firewood cut and split for the winter and then had my knee fully evaluated with an MRI. • AS OF TODAY: I’ve gained 15 pounds, grown a sweet beard, finished firewood before winter and finally got the (other) knee all fixed up. Rehab/PT and rest for the Fall then hopefully skiing in December and starting some significant training. • I turn thirty-nine in November. I have started on a new path and I intend to finish it. Planning to race intermediate to half distance tri’s next year and then an IM and an ultra marathon when I turn forty! • continued in next post.... • #triathlete | #skier | #runner | #tri | #argueyourlimits

Morning is wonderful. Its only drawback is that it comes at such an inconvenient time of day. -Glen Cook. . .

There are not many cyclists where I live, so I was happy to have another father around who was excited to go on a Father’s Day morning ride. ☀️I may have almost been hit twice by impatient pickup trucks but sadly near-misses is nothing new to most of you. 🚲 If you’re a father, hope you had a good day! ✌🏼🙅🏻‍♂️. . . . . . . . . #cycling | #cyclist | #lifeontwowheels | #fromwhereiride | #argueyourlimits | #happyfathersday | #onceagainracing | #castelli | #getoutside | #feltbicycles | #pedalsmovethesoul | #triathlete |

I wanted to say that I hate running on the track but those feelings are arrogant and entitled. I’m blessed to be able to run, to have a safe place to do it and the gear to do it comfortably. The rehab continues and I am fortunate that it does! . . . . . . | #runner | #running | #triathlete | #trilife | #runflatstaylow | #onthetrack | #kneehab | #runnersofinstagram | #saucony | #howihammer | #hammernutrition | #tri | #run | #outsideisfree | #blessed | #appreciatethemoment | #argueyourlimits | #gratitude |
