Lolo Jones is sharing her prayers with supporters after returning to hurdling for the first time since having a hip surgery two months ago.
“Less than two months after hip surgery, I was able to hurdle for the first time. I was nervous to return,” Jones wrote on Instagram. “My prayer for you guys tonight is that courage always rises when things attempt to intimidate you. Today, I did baby hurdles.”
Last October, the 33-year-old track-and-field athlete had to get surgery to repair her torn hip labrum. However, Jones has set goals for herself on the road to her recovery.
“Next week I will attempt a taller height. Strive until you overcome the tallest hurdle blocking your path,” Jones wrote. “We are all hurdlers in life.”
