R.I.P. Eddie

Post  Dave P on Tue Sep 23, 2014 9:11 am

Just a few yards from the finish line of the Valley 5K in Bristol, CT, the unthinkable happened. This was the race that I was helping to organize & manage. Eddie did a face plant into the asphalt from sudden cardiac arrest. Firemen/ EMTs were there & worked on him almost immediately as his family, my wife & son, & many other runners looked on. I'm still very sad & in a daze over it, but I live with the peace of knowing my eternal destiny when it's my time.

As you know, Dave, when it's your time to go, you're gone.  You will always have the fragrance of memories.

So sorry to hear that, Dave. I didn't see any news about that here. How awful.
