Hey Mick, I’m the guy you saved! :-) it is hard to put into words the deep feeling of thanks and wholehearted appreciation that I have for you and everyone that came together to keep me alive today. It was messy, it was scary, and it was undeniably one of the most profound acts I have ever experienced. You truly appreciate the kindness of strangers when they are literally keeping your lungs working. I have no doubt that had that happened elsewhere on the course, or even out on a run by myself, I wouldn’t be here. Thank you Mick, and everyone else involved today. I am one very lucky, and immensely grateful son of a bitch! We all need to know CPR!
