What a weekend

Starting with Saturday's Ironman Florida, another day of tracking and watching online video coverage of my teammates and coaches. They all did great, everyone finished with times between 11 hours and 14 hours 30 minutes, what an accomplishment. Someday, I'll do it!
Saturday also brought some sad news, during the US men's Olympic trials in New York, Ryan Shay died. He was 28 and a great runner, he just collapsed at the 5 1/2 mile mark. This really makes you think about life and how fragile it is, no matter how well you take care of yourself. This brought an abrupt end to the celebration of the winner's when they heard the news.
Sunday was the New York City Marathon, another day of tracking teammates online and everyone finishing. The big news of the race was the women's winner Paula Radcliffe who gave birth to her daughter just 9 months ago.
