O'Malley Suffers Stress Fracture on Treadmill

Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) will govern on crutches for the next six weeks while he recovers from a stress fracture in the shin bone of his right leg. He suffered it while running on the treadmill, his office said today.

It's unclear when the tibia fractured, but the governor was limping last week. He sought medical help Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where the fracture was diagnosed by Dr. Andrew Cosgarea, director of the Division of Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery. O'Malley is not in a cast.

Spokesman Rick Abbruzzese said the governor does not expect the crutches to slow him down.Yesterday he attended the annual Patuxent River Wade-In St. Mary's County.

O'Malley is an avid exerciser who works out several times a week at one of the Merritt Athletic Clubs in the state.
