I am a long time “jog-a-holic” 10 marathons and many 5K’s & 10 K’s. I thought my running days were over after my left knee began to give me pain…even walking.

However, when I heard Peter Spiller had run another 130 mile race after having a hip replacement surgery by Dr. Grimes, I decided to check in with him. When Dr. Grimes told me I could run again, I went ahead with my knee replacement surgery.

Two and one half months following my surgery I achieved my goal: running one mile on the beach ( with no pain )…. on my 80th birthday !
