Weekend News

Well, my plan for this post was to update my weekend workouts....

Instead, I received some terrible news when I got into work this morning. My buddy Russ Frazier's 20 year old son "Rusty" passed away Saturday morning. Apparently he drowned in their hot tub. Rusty had type 2 diabetes and my guess is that he passed out due to low blood sugar and he drowned. I am so completely saddened for Russ.

Those of you who read my blog, Russ is the one who owns the red buick in the pictures I posted from the car show. Russ and I spent that entire weekend talking about our kids and how Rusty was turning 21 on April 14th. Just terrible and my heart breaks for Russ. Here is the obituary.

Also, I got word from my mother yesterday that my Uncle is currently in ICU. He has severe swelling on his brain caused by a sinus infection. All of this has been very difficult to deal with and please pray for Russ and my uncle.

I had a really active weekend...I biked 22.4 miles, ran 4 miles, and lifted for 45 minutes on Saturday. I also ran 4.1 miles on Friday but all of that just doesn't seem important now. I will report my March totals this evening.

Our family's prayers go out to your friend Russ and to your family as well. I hope your uncle has a speedy recovery.

This is where workouts become more about mental health than physical.

I'm so sorry Jason. Words cannot express, just know you're in my thoughts
