Thoughts and ramblings of an ultrarunner. I love long runs because I can think freely.

Hanging by a thread
Tuesday I called a supplier who was way behind on shipping us some parts. A man answered the phone, and as soon as I told him who I was, he said "your parts aren't ready." An odd response I thought from someone we'd done business with for over 30 years. I politely asked when he thought they would be ready, and he said Friday. Today a lady from the company called, and told me the man who I'd spoken to, the owner, committed suicide. He was 57 with a wife, children, and grandchildren.
