My running partner died today. Please pray... (Read 2869 times)

    We were on a 13 mile run.  We hit 8 miles and I was about 10 paces in front when I hear, "Oh shit..."

    I turn around to see my best friend collapse, unconscious.

    He had a heart attack and died. 
    I did CPR to the best of my ability, but he was dead before the EMT's arrived.

     

    Please pray for his family.  He leaves behind a wonderful wife and 2 kids.  

      Prayers for your friend's family and you.


      Needs more cowbell!

        Mark, I am so sorry...for you, and for his family.  I can't begin to imagine how you are feeling. Sad

        I shoot pretty things! ~

          awful tragedy man, sorry you had to go through that.

           

          things like this can often bring friends and families closer together, hopefully everyone involved will keep his memory close.

           

          you can take comfort in knowing he died doing something he enjoyed.

              How do you keep your feet on the ground, when you know you were born to fly?

               

              Just a girl who runs.


              Feeling the growl again

                OMG.  Prayers for his family and I am sorry you had to go through that.  I can only imagine.

                      Oof. This is horrible. 

                       

                      Headed out for the long run with my buddies in a few. Think I'm gonna suggest we all get recertified.

                      I look my best blurry!

                        How horribly shocking and sad this is just to read. I can't imagine what you are going through. Prayers are with you all. Being recertified is a good idea. Thinking of you, Kristen

                          My thoughts are with you, and the friends and family of your running partner.  I really can't imagine how you feeling.

                              My friends and I joke about this all the time which now seems about the dumbest thing ever.  I'm very sorry for your loss.
