Update May 27, 2017 – I’m sharing my story because I know that there are others who are experimenting with what it is possible to accomplish physically with resurfaced hips. I have been a life long runner, although the only official race I ran was the Marine Corp Marathon in 1987 at age 30, time 3:14.

I just “ran through it.” I finally went to a doctor in November 2010 and the X-rays showed that both of my … Read the rest
April 29, 2017 – This thread is to update my progress after five years on my second hip. I am now going on 71 years and will be taking the National Ski Patrol classes this summer and plan to be an active Patroller this winter at the ski areas in the Midwest that are near me. I have enjoyed cross country ski races of 25K, biking of over 100K in a day and also downhill skiing through the trees. I must say that one major help to me has been my participation in weekly YOGA … Read the rest
Just wanted to update the progress of my resurfaced hip done on August 18th. Three days ago I finished a 3000km bike ride from the very top of New Zealand to the very bottom and for the entire ride I had zero issues. In fact I’d forgot that it had even been done at all it was so good!
In November I’m off to climb Vinson, the highest mountain in Antarctica and I’m sure that will go the same way 🙂
I’ll see you guys when I manage to screw my left hip up…

I want to truly thank you and your team for allowing me to accomplish this event. Sincerely, Rich Hampton Left BHR recipient March 2006
