Here's why runners are so great

I ran the Sammamish Half marathon today (race report to come) and at the finish line a man collapsed.  His pulse apparently stopped.  A man ran over and gave him CPR while two other women called 911.  Three other volunteers ran to the park entry to flag down the ambulance. 

The man was released from urgent care and is under observation this evening.  A group of people came together for someone they didn't know with incredible bias for action to make sure he was on the road to recovery. 

Runners are great.
