Congratulations to my sister, woman of steel

Congrats to Jamie, who ran in the Chicago Marathon yesterday.
Jamie, I am so incredibly proud of and amazed by you.

Here is an excerpt from Jamie's post race email:
I can't get my overall place,
but my finishing time is listed...3 hours and 44
minutes. I was shooting for 3 hours and 40 minutes.
Under the circumstances, however, I am very happy that
I finished and that I went to the airport, not the
hospital, afterward! I think it was probably at about
4 hours that they officially called the race.

that's awesome!! what an accomplishment!! give her props for me when you talk to her again!

on a sadder note, i covered the race in the news today, only for the fact some cop from Midland died during the race. at first they were thinking it was because of the heat, but turns out he had a heart condition.
