I volunteered as part of the medical staff at the Little Rock Marathon today. I worked the 1st relay stop and later the 3rd relay stop. We only had mostly minor stuff -- some blisters, some muscle cramps, some mild heat/dehydration issues. At the 3rd relay stop, we did have some more major muscle cramps and dehydration issues. There was a death today. Adam Nichols, 27 yo, from Wisconsin collapsed at the finish line around 11 am. It was his 6th marathon. I would like to give my condolences to his family and friends.
