Darcy Welsh

July 2022 Athletico patient of the month

I started running later in life at sixty-three years old, after watching my neighbor’s health improve as she ran. Genetics and wear and tear on my knees took its toll. By sixty-nine, I needed both knees replaced. My running friends recommended Athletico Bourbonnais for post-op PT. I met Bob and he designed a program specific to me, my goals, my strengths, and weaknesses. Was it easy? NO! Did I do my exercises at home? Yes, I wanted complete recovery and return to running. Blood, sweat, and many tears later I was able to run 5k’s again. I recently completed a four hour trail race and placed second for females seventy and over. My real joy was seeing Bob again at the “I’ve Got Your 6” 5k in Bourbonnais. I won my age group and had a PR for post-op time. Thank you Bob! Thank you Athletico!
