That's definitely an unfortunate shocker, but the cynic in me wonders how long until the rumors start swirling.

I think the rumors are already swirling ... But it is way too early ... And at least let the family grieve ... A ver sad and shocking incident ...

That is a huge shock. It will be interesting to see what the autopsy results show.

Seems like a terrible situation can't imagine what it would be like to be in it where she was running with him and the whole tearing off for the hospital only to find out she did not make it... I don't know makes you think....

I've been told by a medical student friend I was lucky to have not died as the result of a bad running experience, but that isn't exactly the same...

No not really - I am sure we have all had our little brushes with some sort of disaster - some strange and some kind of comical looking back - but at least we all came through them

As Paul can attest, there was nothing particularly comical about my story, other than maybe the balloon and camera stuck up my you know what, looking for the source of the internal bleeding...
