Because my brother had his appendix removed the day before The San Luis Obispo Triathlon, he could not complete our second triathlon. Fortunately, the Triathlon course took me right by the hospital my brother was staying at and I was able to complete it and still be close enough to my brother in case he needed me.
My brother was hoping he would be released on the day of the Triathlon, but unfortunately the anesthesia they gave him made it impossible for him to pee. The doctor’s needed to make sure that he could pee before they could release him from the hospital.
When I came to visit my brother the next day, he was proudly displaying his urine for all to see with a huge grin on his face. He was going to be released from the hospital. After a wild and adventurous weekend The Running Brothers left San Luis Obispo with one 60th CSPA Anniversary under their belt, one completed Triathlon and one less appendix then they came with.
