Sorrow in Philadelphia
A 40 year old man has disappeared in a Philadelphia river while taking part in the Karr Barth CHOP Charity Challenge. Officials are continuing their search of the river at this moment. Over 1500 athletes began the event, which consisted of a .9 mi swim, 24k bike, and a 5k run. Sometimes, with all that we do in training, it’s easy to forget the dangers our sport entails. Stay safe fellow athletes. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
