CPR


30:2 Those are the magic numbers. Thirty compressions for every two breaths. Remember them!!
A blogger recently collapsed and needed CPR here in Chicago. So realizing it was used twice in just a few weeks, I thought it would be smart to pass on to all the runners out there the importance of learning it.
We pass our time in a sport that requires we know this. You can contact your local Red Cross to find a course in your area.
If you do nothing else, read it and remember!! And pass it on to your loved ones!!

Congrats to the new ultra runner!!! I cannot say welcome because I will never join the group! When I was in the Navy I had to learn to compress and to "kiss" a "collapsed" doll.
