Well I am back to the gym and beginning to get back into a groove. No running yet just swimming and some weights. Just like the House of Pain song “guess who’s back” and LL cool j from Mama said knock you out. “Don’t call it a comeback” I want to thank all those who helped me during my time off my feet. Especially my wife and my mom for driving me around and also a big shout out to Optimum Physical Therapy in

We are also in need of host families for this Summer. Host families are volunteers who open their hearts and homes to a child from the city to give them a fresh air experience they never forget.
Check out their site. It is for a great cause.
Enjoy the week.
More on my recover this weekend.

So what is the update on my leg?
I hope to get my cast off tomorrow and I will know more. Enjoy the snow.

Most people who read this post will be reading it because I set it up to link through facebook and post in my notes. Most people do not know that this blog (www.doyoutri.net) was setup long before facebook became as big as it has become.
Facebook has allowed my blog to grow but it also has taken away since people do not go to blog directly rather they just read it on facebook.
Also the part of my blog was to keep people updated on what was going on in my racing and training so going forward I am going to begin using my blog more for updates and less on facebook. I feel that being too connected can have its downsides and as a result I want people to follow my blog rather then just reading it on facebook.
So as for an update on my injury. I hope to be out of this cast later this week and into a boot where I hope I can walk without crutches in a couple weeks. I cannot wait to drive again also. I am glad this winter has been so cold because I know that I would not be loving it.
enjoy your week.

Well I went for a run just like I normally do. It was snowing a bit but that has never stopped me from running. I run in all weather. So I was taking my normal route. As I was running I began to notice some water run off that had frozen. So I went around it I was on more ice that I could not see and that was it. I tried to stop to get off the ice and the next thing I knew my right leg was behind me I heard a snap and pop and I fell. I knew I was hurt and when I looked my right foot was 90 degrees to the right. So I reached down and turned it back straight so I could move. I knew I could not stand up and my ankle was full off blood and swollen so I began to drag myself onto someones lawn as I was crawling on this lawn and guy came out who happened to be an athletic trainer. At first he did not think I was hurt then I told him I needed help. He came over and checked me out. At the same time the other person home got the car and they both helped me into their car. They drove me home to grab my phone and keys and then continued to the ER. The ride took forever since there was all kinds of traffic and finally we got to the ER and it took only 25 min. I was in all kinds of pain. Once I was admitted they gave me meds for the pain and put my ankle back in place and then they told me I would have surgery in the morning. The surgery went well and now I am on the mend :)
now you know the story
