Hello everyone. I am a new girl. I have had a very painful and depressing year but I am hoping to make a new start next year. I used to be a top lady triathlete but I have ruined all my leg joints through road running and now cannot even swim or cycle, let alone walk without aids. At 35 I am too young to have replacement joints but I am in severe pain constantly. I used to have many friends (boys!) in the athletics world but over the last year they have all drifted away, not wanting to waste time on someone who can no longer keep up with them.
Anyway that is all in the past and I am pleased to have discovered this website and I am determined to make a fresh start in 2010.
Happy New Year everyone!
I have called myself BobbiD because my nickname used to be Bobby Dazzler (my real name is Roberta, which I hate!).
