I HATE race day

Because of stuff like this:

I saw them doing chest compressions and intubating him.

In case you are wondering, I did not make my goal time of 2:25.  I came in at 2:34 and change.  It was a hard day and I have the blisters to prove it.  I did PR by 10 minutes though but that all seems insignificant now.


  1. Wow, this is so tragic. It seems to happen more and more in races. So sad.

    I can't believe you actually saw it. That would be a difficult image to get out of your head.

    Sorry about your bad race experience.

  2. That's really sad. A runner my exact age passed away in the Mississippi Blues Marathon last year - I didn't see him, but it really reminds you what's important.

  3. Oh, that's so sad. My prayers are with his family.

  4. Just saw the story on mlive. RIP. Prayers to his family. So sad.

    Nice job on your PR.

  5. I heard about this from a friend who ran it as well. Its not fair, he is out there, doing something healthy that is suppose to be good for him in the long run. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family

  6. I heard about that! So terrible. I'm sorry your race was not what you hoped it would be but damn girl way to PR!!!!
