Broken Ankle

What I thought was a bad sprain has turned out to be a pretty bad break. It wasn't getting any better so I went and got it x-rayed yesterday and it is broke. Surgery next thursday and in a cast for 6-8 weeks. I hate the fact that I broke my ankle but I love the pills they gave me.

It's all good. I was due for something like this, I've been too lucky for too long.

Peace to all,

Gimp

Holly crap, Billy! A surgery! 6 weeks in a cast! Makes it 2 months before HR to get it off?? Are you still planning to be there? In any capacity? Man, sorry, what a bummer, why in the world didn't you take xray before, would have been half way through...shoot. Glad you had an awesome time at Sylamo though. I am talking Mike into coming there next year, he is almost agreeing, need your help:)
Hang tough, brother, best on a surgery! If you need a shoulder to limp on, shoot an email.

Dang Billy, that really sucks.

[Here's where I say something that's supposed to make you feel better.]

In '99 I broke my fibula around New Years but ended up having a great summer-fall of running, including my first HRH finish. I did a LOT of stationary biking, like an hour a day for 6 weeks! (O_O) So hang in there. You'll pull through this; it just takes time.

Yer bud,
Sue

Hey man, sorry to hear about your injury. I have only been running for 3 years and I have somehow managed to get hurt every year so far, so I kinda know how ya feel. Hop eyou get better soon and I am flattered that you would want to run in our race. It is something I have wanted to do for a while.
