Ouch, my hip hurts

It’s been a fun season, albeit with ups and downs.  I’ve completed seven triathlons and a bunch of running races, but had a brief setback back in late July.  While out riding with my Terrier Tri teammates in Bergen County, NJ, I hit a depression in the road (I initially called it a hole, but […]
