Two days since the race and I’m still sore as hell. Oh well, that’s the price you pay! Oddly enough, I cant wait until the next one. Haven t decided which one yet but, It wont be until March or April of 2006. I need at least a 4 month break. I contacted the USHALF race director and Active.com via email to make sure they don’t forget about the medals. It makes me kind of uneasy when a business entity or large organization has no phone number or physical address. Hopefully, they have the integrity to make things right for everyone involved.

Asthma in 2014
Most frequently asked question
The answer is..YES!
While it's a little unusual to see a person with a perfect O2 sat of a 100% during a severe exacerbation, its pretty typical to see sats in the 94-97% range. The reason for this, is that asthma is a disease of the airways , not the alveoli where gas exchange takes place. Most asthmatics dont desaturate during the early stages of an attack,unless theres a secondary problem such as pneumonia. You have to be extremely ill with asthma if your sats are low.
