"I just talked to Brenda. No George Clooney. Her hip started hurting during the run, getting worse and worse after the halfway point, until she was only able to run a few steps and then was walking. At mile 15, she heard a loud crack in her hip and down she went. Ambulance came, whisked her away, x-rays followed and she has a fractured hip. She is scheduled for surgery, hopefully today. It sounds as if they'll put a rod in her leg from hip to knee. Then 6 weeks of crutches, then rehab. Typical Brenda -- she is still laughing and able to make a great story of it. She is in a hurry to get the surgery done, so she can get out. Oh -- and dying because she hasn't been able to shower or clean up. After a 2.4 mile lake swim, 112 miles in bike shorts and 15 miles of running. She did get her hands on a comb. I've got to nominate her for best attitude (she had me cracking up throughout the phone conversation) and best IM story ever. But still, ouch."
So sad! But, hey--what a trooper! Absolutely unbelievable. She is one kick-a$$ woman!!!!
