Jim, you were right there! I was a bit afraid to check your blog but I'm very glad you're okay.

It is a terrible thing to happen. I don't know what to say, it feels too close - people like us who live in big cities and take part in races or stand on the sidelines to support them. It could happen to any one of us.
