Last weekend I walked another 14.5miles, and on the first day I was joined by two friends. I was born with hip-dysplasia and it was obvious immediately that my hips weren’t normal.
It’s estimated that one in every 1000 people are born with hip-dysplasia. It takes many forms and I suspect that no two DDH walks appear quite the same. For me, it’s all about letting my right side lead.
Last week I completed my first South Downs Way walking test, with my good friend Beth and her cool dog, Bo. I wanted to gauge how far I could walk without too much pain.
