Crash shatters triathlete's dream

I used to train with Keri. When I got hit by a car, she let me borrow her bike, so I could still compete at Mooloolaba. I know the exact spot where she got hit.

She is probably the most dedicated triathlete I have known. Her coach would send her 13 work outs a week and tell her she could skip one. But she never would. She never wanted to take the easy way. She saw that as a slippery slope. If you skip one work out, then you've given yourself permission to skip another.

They're apparently keeping her in the coma until her back is healed enough for it to be moved. The whole situation is just horrible, and I can't stop thinking about it.
