I broke my right femur 16 months ago I broke

Patient: I broke my right femur 16 months ago. I broke it during a race while running track. I had surgery and 2 pins inserted and removed months later. I didn’t have any bone deficiencies or disorders that would cause this to happen, I was told it was a freak accident. It was a clean break near the knee, didn’t break through skin. I am a 16 year old healthy male. I am back on the track team and after running a lot it aches right where I broke it, and my other leg is fine. Should I run less or is this normal? Thank you
