I appreciate people who have passion in their lives and their work, whether in cardiology or in running. Certainly, Geoff had that profoundly for all he'd done in his life.
He must have had quite a struggle with cancer, as he was affected by a warm (not hot) morning 4 years ago at the Trials, when he came out for a Nike-sponsored funrun one morning. I remember that Joan Benoit never left his side that morning until she was more than certain he was ok. He was deeply cared for, or this would not have happened. I'll be wearing the Swoosh today, thinking of him.
