The Biggest Loser's Guide to Hip Fracture by Doug K. Patient Expert Posted Wed 15 Apr 2009 11:11pm NBC's "The Biggest Loser" lost a contestant, Laura, 24 years old, to a stress fracture of the hip yesterday 4/14/09.

A Stress Fracture, Indeed by Jessica S. Posted Fri 08 Jan 2010 12:00am Today I found out that I do indeed have a stress fracture in my left hip.

Hip Bursitis by RunEatPlay Posted Mon 22 Jul 2013 6:05pm I went to the sports doctor this morning and it turns out that I do have hip bursitis. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that acts like a cushion between tendons, bones, and skin. It contains fluid to lubricate the area and reduce friction. My hip bursa has become inflamed due to too much friction, hence the diagnosis of the hip bursitis. ... Read on »
Perfect Saturday! by katrinaruns Posted Sun 11 Apr 2010 9:14pm The day started off with a beautiful trail run. The trail was a little muddy, but the canopy of trees filtered out a lot of pollen so the air was cleaner. I ran 10.7 hard miles. I felt good, though. No pain, the knee and hip were quiet. It seems I’m finally out of my 2 year agony with IT band/hip stress fracture issues. As long a ... Read on »

When the mind is overwhelmed…nothing gets done. by katrinaruns Posted Mon 19 Apr 2010 9:21pm This past week can be summed up in two words: testing and half-marathon. The race is in 4 weeks!!! I did a long run of 12 miles with some wicked elevation and switchbacks out at the lake. (shh…….but today, my IT band started hurting. I haven’t felt that in over a year. I’m not going to panic, i’m not going to panic, I’m not ... Read on »
hmmmm. Maybe it’s spring fever! by Jessica L. Facebook Posted Tue 09 Mar 2010 4:18am I guess I’m going to start this entry by saying that I think I’ve been in a funk.  Not sure why… I just feel like I’m going through my daily routines but there’s not much, I don’t know, excitement? Maybe excitement isn’t the right word.  I just feel kind of blah all of the time.  There are periods of un-blah-ness, like when I’m at the gym takin ... Read on »
