Snapshot Sunday: 100 Miles

Posted by Picasa

A just-completed-69-miles runner's-eye view of the Wolfkiel Aid Station, where AMRG provided medical support and search-and-rescue standby for the Oil Creek 100 foot race this weekend.

Because a marathon is just not hard-core enough.

Most interesting medical event of the weekend: Twenty-something male runner complaining of abdominal pain radiating sub-sternal.*

After sufficient discussions, a Hx of a defective pyloric valve, possible celiac disease, and oh yeah, this exact kind of discomfort from time to time whenever he inadvertently eats wheat, any potentially alarming element was quelled.

  1. Like ringing a bell. "Celiac disease" and "llama" are now cemented in my head. Bad Craigslist. No biscuit.

  2. Just found your blog and I love it! It's always nice to find a kindred spirit on line, not to mention a true dog person. I'll be a daily reader now. Check out my blog too. I think you'll agree we have a lot in common. karen
