TGIF

This is one of the longest weeks. Every part of my life is busting at the seams. We have double our patient load. (which is not good at a cancer care center) Bino had bowling tryouts for school. Hooch had extra practice for her first cheer competition. Hubby was working long hours. I had my new training schedule. I felt like that I was meeting myself coming and going.

A follow-up to the Chicago marathon and the runner who died. In an investigation, it has been shown he collapse and it took 30 minutes for an ambulance to get to him. The crew that arrived was from the suburb and did not know there was a hospital 6 blocks away and headed a different direction. It also seems he still did have a heartbeat despite early reports. If you are intersted go to CBS 2 Chicago and look in the video library for a report. Again , I ask are these races getting too big to be safe?

Waddling into the weekend....

I agree on that. It would be great if all races would cap out, but its all about the money, not the runners. Triathlon at least has that part right.

Tough week indeed...there are seasons like that.

Thanks for being there for the cancer patients. You giving of yourself for them means more than you'll ever know. Same thing for your kids...you have it right!

45K is a lot of runners. I remember in 97 that figure was under 19K. Moose signed up AT the Expo.

Sorry your week was so tough. Keep your chin up!
