    Sad to hear that you can't race any more, IanDP; but pleased that you have now got more time to be involved in the revival that the Forum is currently experiencing.

    Sad news indeed Ian. Good to hear you can still get out walking - I hope you're still enjoying the fells.

    Sorry to hear that Ian, I wondered why I hadn't seen you for a while.
    I think I'm coming to a similar point myself. I'm only just managing to scrape through the remains of the 50@50 heavily dosed up on painkillers and taking about a week to recover after each race. Knee cartilage in my case though.
    Do what you like, like what you do

    Way to go Ian I have always led my life guided by the wise words of the quote by Hunter S Thompson as my guide :- Hunter S. Thompson > Quotes > Quotable Quote
    Hunter S. Thompson


    “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    ― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

    Reading your post I figure you are familiar with the quote

    Whilst at bramley parkrun today, volunteering at the finish funnel not running, i was told what i think is the most woefully unnecessary and tragic injury story i've ever heard. I thought i could cut a sorry sight with injury, but this lady has taken the biscuit.

    She developed plantar fasciitis, but didn't approach the recovery properly and just ran through it. Changes to her gait put so much adverse loading through her knee that she collapsed one half of the meniscus and tore a cruciate ligament. In order to address this, the surgeon had to break her femur and remove a triangle shaped piece in order to alter the alignment of the femur on the buggered meniscus. The bone grew back fine and the joint restabilised, she now runs slowly three times a week and has to back off totally if it gets painful. Quite remarkable.

    That would be Park Tool then?

    I use no other.
