Amy Gluck hit by a semi Quote | Reply

A friend of mine was hit by a semi this weekend near my house. Her name is Amy Gluck. She's a top female age grouper. Multiple trips to Kona and age group wins. She is currently in critical condition in a medically endured coma at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. She a very strong person and could really use the support of the community. Please keep Amy in your thoughts during this tough time.

ADMIN EDIT: *Attention* SOAS Racing is holding a fundraiser with 100% of proceeds going to Amy Gluck. "We <3 Amy" wristbands $10. http://shop.soasracing.com/...-love-amy-sweatband/

That is rough. I hope she pulls through.


"In the world I see you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Towers. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying stripes of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway." T Durden

Northwest suburbs of Oakland county. Ortonville/Metamora area.

I did get an update that she is moving her extremities. The swelling is still really bad and they are waiting for it to go down to see the extent of the damage.

Sad.... must have been the wrong place at the wrong time. Very big blind spots with trucks and I am guessing Amy was in one. When I drive the firetruck or when i used to drive a 36' box truck you always have to be aware as a driver. Especially after passing someone running or biking.

Hope she comes through with limited issues. This is why I never ride/wait next to a car or truck. I always ride behind or in front so that I can watch for brake lights/blinkers and hopefully see the vehicle turning into my way.

Edited my post- posts keep getting deleted about the accident and I don't want to get anyone in trouble.... but I don't think that is what happened in this accident. I agree- be careful around trucks, but from the limited information available right now, it appears that this is not what happened in this incident.

She is one of the strongest women I have ever known. If anyone can get through this Amy can. We are all wishing her a fast recovery. All of your friends are behind you and we know not even a semi is big enought to keep you down.

Her condition is improving. The swelling is under control and she is going into surgery for the broken bones.

Current-aided swims
Do swims aided by a current, such as the NYC Tri and the past weekend's IM Chattanooga, diminish the achievement? Or are they just a local geographic expression of multisport?
