Hi I’m Roger.  I’m 41 live and work in New York City and suffered a 3.5 to 4cm tear in my right Achilles during my Monday night men’s soccer league match in the fall of 2008.  I had surgery on Nov 5, 2008.  Having been in a continuous state of athletics since age 8 it has been extremely hard for me not be on someone’s team playing some competitive sport.  Luckily, I also coach youth sports (I have an 11 year old son).  I coach soccer, basketball and baseball so I will constantly be on a field of somesort until I can actively run with my team again!
