Brief Introduction

I’m an IT Manager and 40 years old.  I have a wife and 2 kids.  I’ve been very active my whole life.  I’ve played soccer since I was 6 years old.  I also snowboard, run, and play racquetball.  I’ve had several injuries in my life including 2 bone fractures in my right foot, a fully torn ACL in my left knee, and more.  2016 is the year of the Achilles Avulsion for me. Yay…(sarcasm).  Welcome to the over 40 club.

I have been doing lots of Internet searching and have found very few blogs on the Achilles Avulsion.   In fact, the best blog I could find is on this site from 2009/2010 from assumptiondenied at  http://achillesblog.com/assumptiondenied/.  Big thanks to assumptiondenied for a detailed blog through the recovery.  Seeing how this blog is several years old I felt compelled to add a new blog for all of my fellow Achilles Avulsion cool friends out there :)

In addition, thank you to the creator of achillesblog.com.
