It’s been a year

(Last Updated On: February 16, 2010)

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of my season-ending crash which resulted in tearing my ACL. It’s been a long year of tears, fear, recovery, and strength. My knee still continues to heal- I would place it at about 90% healed. I can ski everything I want to be skiing, but taking air and skiing hard bumps definitely cause it to swell. My strength is still not where I want it to be, but it also still continues to improve.

They always say that “what doesn’t kill you just makes you stronger”. I’m not sure that I feel any more physically or even mentally stronger than prior to my injury. But, I do know that tearing my ACL opened up other opportunities in my life. I made new friends, a couple of whom shared the same injury and recovery with me. And I refocused my energy on my work- which is paying off even now. It’s good to see the good within the bad.

Here’s to a continued happy and healthy season for everyone!
