13 months ago I had surgery to replace my anterior cruciate ligament (in my knee). After the surgery I got quite despondent and didn't think I was ever going to be able to run again without pain. It seemed to be a very long time to build up my strength, but today marked the end of my recovery - 10km Stadium to surf race ending at St Clair Beach. The clock said 1 hour 8 min when I crossed the line. I'm happy with that.
