Rise of the Sufferfests: Dedicated to Rhi

“Show me a hero and I’ll write you a tragedy.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

It was two years ago today. Two years ago that our super close friend (and hero mom) Rhiannon Hull drowned while saving her son’s life in Costa Rica.

And while much beauty has been born of her loss, I sometimes still find my self shaken, shattered, crumpled (and crying on the floor… like now).

Here’s a bittersweet feature in Sports Illustrated about the life and heroic death of the former University of Oregon track star.

And here’s a video eulogy I put together for SI.com…

I miss you, Rhi. And in honor of your life and light, I dedicate Rise of the Sufferfests to you.
