Running, touch football.

Bushwalking and landscape photography are favourite hobbys. My knee has curtailed these activities for about 12 months.

sports are my liiiife. i don't do too many of them, but i strive to reach really really high levels in the sports i DO participate in.

soccer-like 11 years. i play year round for my high school and a club team. my club team actually went to Spain to train with professional women's teams (and we are based out of Los Angeles, so it was a biiiig trip)

figure skating-like 4. my goal for this year was to do well at regionals, but seeing as i haven't skated for 6 months, that didn't really work out.

running- track and field at my hs. i like the 400 best (i can get under a minute when i'm fit!)

and then for fun--volleyball, swimming, basketball
16 years old

8-03 unhappy triad LK, undiagnosed by an idiot of an OS so now i wear a donjoy
PFS for the lasat 7 years or so
10-06 Cortizone shot LK
11-06 Scope for torn meniscus RK
3-07 right ankle recon

In High School I participated in cross country, track, and swimming.  I did two seasons of track and two of cross country.  After my first season of swimming my junior year I blew out my ankle in practice.  (It is actually possible to blow out an ankle swimming.  I was diving off of the blocks and my foot totally slipped and I tried to recatch my balence and slammed the side of my foor into the starting block.  It hurt but not too bad so I kept swimming for three days.  On the fourth day it was killing me and swollen and bruised.  I got in to warm up anyway because it was our big meet and I was on the big relay and I had worked so hard all season for it.  I did one flip turn and it felt like someone had torn my foot off of my leg.)  My High School athletic career was over after that although I did do track my senior year, but I was no where near the shape I had been in before my ankle injury.  I only did it because I was dying to get back into a sport.  I was also on the High School dance team my freshman year.

I took ballet for three years, tap for three, jazz for three, and toe for one year when I was younger.  I also love to rock climb.

My sports life has been very limited for the past four years when things finally went downhill with my knees.  Once I recover from my TTT's I intend to get back to rock climbing, hiking, and some light running.

I havent done many actvie sports; a season of track and field (shot and discus) in highschool (some 20 odd years ago) and a season of little league football.

I do hunt some, and shoot competitively, did the tournament fishing thing a while. I decided in highschool that I like more and made way more money raising cattle. So thats been 'my thing'.

Now my main hobby besides farming is behind the lense of a camera. My subjects are typically people, alternative models, and art photography. I do a lot of location shoots, old factories, cemetaries, abandoned railroads. Got to get me knee back under me to do it. I had hoped to start fencing classes this past fall, maybe next year........

Hello,

I have not ply for last 16 years got back in to it, to Fast! and was plying 2-3x week for 2-3 hrs all out and one day at turnament I moved with me left leg wrong , I was up in the air and landing and fast movement made my ACL to ropture.
So now back to the bike trying to recover from surgery.
Best,
Les

Hey Linney, forgot about the canoeing in the wilderness lakes. Thanks. Also Hiking on the Superior Hiking trail along the Northshore of Lake Superior.

You are the opposite of me for running. I hated to just run. I had to be chasing a ball or a puck or someone carrying a ball to keep me interested.

Your folks must have had fun trying to keep a leash on you as an infant  ;D

Seems like a fairly obvious topic seeing as we are almost all sports related casualties...or were at some point in time.

Here goes:

Alpine Ski Racing (also only sport to be seriously injured in)
Competitive Sailing
Hockey
Golf
Wakeboarding (well we will have to see after latest injury)
Badminton
Tennis
Soccer (in and outdoor)
Mtn. Biking
Swimming

...and my favourite sport of all (at least since I was first injured):  Talking to the young ladies at physio and the gym, chicks who dig scars are awesome!

Hopefully, I am still able to do most of this until I am very old (...especially that last one!  ;D)

Chris
Watch out or the snow snakes might get you!

Jan. 1998 - Thumb, 2 pins...back racing 2 weeks with spint.
Mar. 2001 - Tib/Fib/Femur, 2 rods, 1 plate, 11 screws, 2 skin grafts...recovery 6 months.
Jan. 2007 - ACL tear, meniscus damage?...in physio, back on snow within 3 weeks.
