I just looked up more information about it. Apparently it was a combination of his body overheating, him drinking energy drinks instead of water (so his body had too little water and the substances inside his drinks were doing bad things to his liver) and him fainting shortly before finish (so he couldn't do the mandatory "relaxing muscles" thing after such an intense physical activity and that made his condition even worse). Apparently he had also participated in a cycling activity the day before and in the opening of a bar the night before so he hadn't slept much.
Oh and I got the date wrong, it happened on May 22nd. They moved him to the clinic in Berlin because they thought he might need a liver transplant but apparently he didn't need it (yet). Fortunately.
Dangerous!! A guy in the Houston Marathon died because of that. I'm sure others have too. Evidently there is a point of no return with this thing. Even though you're alive when they start treatment, if it's gone too far -- curtains.
Hope you're having fun
Nothing interesting happened this morning, nothing to summarize
By the way, I'm going to buy a new phone on Monday
My first smart phone. Then I'll see how easy it is to check tennis scores from the seaside
I want a Xoom.
Or even more, I want an Asus eee pas transformer. They look great.
I got a new microwave the other day. My old one was on it's very declining last legs after about 23 years and I might add looking a bit shabby too. It was kind of sad to discard it though.
Im liking the new one, but it shows finger prints a lot more than than the old one.
Gonna get a new laptop too fairly soon.
I have not gotten the tablet bug. They're too big. I kind of like my little Nook (dirty
) It functions a bit like a tablet, but it's not so big. I have friends, however, who love their tablets. A lawyer I know has gone paperless, and he carries his tablet with him all the time instead of a laptop.
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave
It's a lovely place, such a lovely place.
I see this is now the thread where JM and the mods have their private discussions. I thought there was a subforum for this kind of thing.
scroll, baby, scroll
Rafa on grass
When's he playing?
But I can't approve of the outfit's lack of color coordination.
