Thank you so much for restoring the gift of running to me. After visiting several doctors over the years, no one could figure out what was exactly wrong. I finally went to SEMI, and was diagnosed with tendonitis, bursitis and a heel spur, and was told that surgery would be needed to fix the problem. The surgery was performed successfully in September 2002. In December 2003 I went on to win the age group title at Canadian cross-country championships. Thank you.
