Patient Story: Ready to Run 50K

Gearing up for your first big run is exciting, but injuries can bring you to a grinding halt. Thanks to Airrosti’s Dr. Siragusa and Jerrod Idle (Certified Recovery Specialist), Lorena Munoz was able to complete her first 50K run and come in third in her division! Read her full story below.

I am so thankful for Airrosti. Three weeks before my first 50K trail run I developed a bruise and swelling on my right foot. I visited an orthopedic surgeon that ruled out a stress fracture or torn tendons. They advised me to stop running and gave me pain and anti-inflammatory meds.
I took 10 days off from running and scheduled an appointment with Airrosti. I expressed my concern to Dr. Siragusa about not being able run the scheduled 50K, and we made it our goal to get me ready for that 50K.
He and Jerrod were extremely positive every visit. Every visit made me realize that the 50K that was right around the corner was very possible. I left it in their hands to make sure that I got there pain free.
They did not fail me, and I did not fail them on that 50K trail run. It was a rainy day, and that course was full of mud. My knees and foot were taped, and that helped me through the miles.
Thanks to Dr. Siragusa and Jerrod, I completed my first 50K and placed 3rd overall in the women’s division. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for making that run possible.
