U.S. marathon trials take tragic turn


The running community is reeling from the news that veteran American marathoner Ryan Shay has died after collapsing at the 5 1/2-mile mark of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. The cause of death has not been released.
My thoughts go out to Shay's family. By all accounts, he was a brilliant athlete and a great guy.
