I don't post often, and when I do I mostly quip, or be a little funny (I hope), but today I am back from my weekend 10K. It was the first 10K I've ever done, and I was slow and hurt afterword, but I finished.

One of the runners, however, did not. He collapsed not far from the finish line and received emergency medical attention. I knew about it at the time because I passed him on my way in, and he was getting medical help, and because he had a crowd around him, I did not stop.

I found out today that he passed away. I know his family is grieving, and they have set up this website ( t.co/aPK0SoGL4E ), but I felt the need to post it here, because it is one of the only outlets I have. I did not know him, but I will remember him.

His family and friends are planning a 5k memorial to "Run Evan Home" I am thinking about doing the virtual option. Because the Browncoats have been here for me to read, and share with, I thank you for your time. This quote comes to mind:

Tracey: When you can't run, you crawl, and when you can't crawl - when you can't do that...

ZoŽ: You find someone to carry you.
