I am a wife and owner of 2 cats living in Seattle, WA.

I am a graphic designer, web designer and business owner. http://brown-bag-creative.com/

I like to cook and knit.

I enjoy being active, fit and healthy.

After a decade+ of running, half-marathons toward the end with aspirations of completing a full marathon, I started getting hip flexor pain.

I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia in 2010.

I had my first major operation, a periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), on my right hip in April of 2011.

I had the same operation on my left hip in May of 2012.
