I hadn’t thought much about my Achilles over the last 2 years. I saw Ryan Howard of the Phillies rupture his on the last swing of the bat for the Phillies this past fall in their loss to the eventual World Champs, the Cardinals. That was a big time bummer for me and my family since we are Phillies fans. I knew the second I saw it that that is what had happened and now he is going through a long rehab to get back (hopefully he will get back after the All-Star Break). Anyway, mine has been holding up just great. I have been doing almost everything that I had been doing prior to the injury EXCEPT play volleyball. I miss it but figure I am 38 now so I don’t need to be running around playing against 20 years olds anyway. I figure as long as I can help run around and coach my 10 year old son’s baseball team I am happy! A poster had asked if I had a current comparison photo to share so here you go (This one’s for you Eross). Take care and quick healing to every0ne.
