gone

Two weeks ago, Nick Huber died. For those who didn't know him, he was a fellow Luther Communications major who graduated 2 years after me.

To my knowledge, we never met. Luther was a pretty small school, so odds are we bumped in to each other at least once. We did email back & forth a bit - mostly about the similarities in our disabilities and international soccer matches.

For two weeks I've been trying to think of something to write about him. I think there's a temptation to eulogize someone when they're gone, even if you didn't know them well. I didn't want to do that.

So, I'll just say that Nick was a funny guy & I loved his politics. He was passionate about supporting ALS research, so throw a buck or two their way if you can spare it.

The link on the right, "Nick - fighting ALS like a mo-fo" is staying up to spread the word.

Colin- Nice website. You're a pretty good darn triathlete. Trying to get into that now...Anyways, a few CC/TF alums saw your blog on the Luther website and it got us talking on our alum site. How long were you out for track in college?

Hey Dinger. I ran track freshman year & I ran indoor only as a sophomore. I didn't figure out I was a distance runner until after senior year started. Bummer.
