at 10:11am this morning, while watching the chicago marathon broadcast and reading over a few blogs i learned that my dear friend rick passed away yesterday. i am in complete disbelief - he wasn't an old fart and he's a runner! runner's are healthy!
rick and i met at the new york marathon, he was concerned for me that morning like he was my own father. we grew as friends over the past two years through our running, blogs and good ol' facebook. he was a wonderful friend (and fellow mets fan) and i miss him incredibly.
run in peace, rick.
(thanks jill, for letting me know)
