Successful Knee Procedure & IRONMAN Foundation

I’m delivering two nuggets for the price of one this morning. First is the good news that my menisectomy went very well yesterday. It was very short and sweet, as anticipated. Secondly, as most of you know, I’m racing IRONMAN Lake Placid 70.3 in September with The IRONMAN Foundation. IMF raises funds and provides community support for the various host cities where IRONMAN events are held.

The media folks at IMF are also featuring me throughout the year via social media posts. Every Monday, I provide them with a blurb to be used on Facebook, Insta, and Twitter. As we get closer to September, their coverage will pick ups and they will follow me even closer throughout the race. So, if you get the chance, check IRONMAN Foundation on the various social channels. And in the meantime, here is our post from yesterday.

  • im_foundationEvery Monday we hear from #TeamIMF Athlete Stephen Brown, and this week’s update is full of important perspective:

    “Greetings team!! I have something new to share today. Last week’s training once again included my own workouts as well as those for the Team in Training athletes that we coach. The twist this week is that I had arthroscopic knee surgery this morning to repair a moderately torn medial meniscus.

    DCCD60DD-131C-41AD-A316-F30B37C919B2Ortho guru Dr. Kevin Freedman of the Rothman Institute marked his territory and less than 15 minutes later, he was all done. While I will undergo a few PT sessions, I am otherwise free and clear to resume activity. Translation = I’ll take it easy this week but will then be back full steam. So… little to zero interruption to life or training. While I may have a couple of issues or “opportunities” that I manage in my life (knee surgery, leukemia, etc) my blessings and good fortunes far outweigh my issues 1,000 to 1. A little perspective and gratitude go a long way.” @remissionmansteve .
