On Cars and Runners

I am a runner, and am soft and squishy.  And I share the road with cars and trucks, and they are hard, fast and scary.  And sometimes it's quite an adventure.  I do want to thank to those drivers who show mercy to poor defenseless runners and give up part of your lane to me.  It is much appreciated.  On the other hand, to the occasional driver who seem to think that 'sharing the road' is a contact sport; it's not.  Fortunately there are not many of you where I run.

It's Surgery

It's been an interesting few weeks trying to find out as much as I can about prostate cancer and how to treat it.  I've read books and looked on the web.  Also spent over an hour talking with my doctor about it.  I have found that there are three basic options for treatment with sub-options for two of them.  One treatment option is to do nothing and hope the cancer does not kill you before you die naturally; not a bad option for someone either much older or much poorer shape than I am in.
