Stuart Hayes was in the ER on Saturday, with a swollen and painful knee.
But Sunday morning his knee felt good, so he did the Chicago Triathlon, and won it, along with a prize of 10 thousand dollars.
The doctor had advised 2 weeks of rest.
But he knew how to put that knee to the test.
Gutsy move. I would have followed the doctor's suggestion.
I saw him. The pros were starting out on their run at about the time I was coming back on mine. He whizzed by, with a very smooth gait, looking like a man on top of the world.
I think he saw that prize
floating before his eyes.
