Take 2 Aspirins and a Triathlon in the Morning

Stuart Hayes was in the ER on Saturday, with a swollen and painful knee.

But Sunday morning his knee felt good, so he did the Chicago Triathlon, and won it, along with a prize of 10 thousand dollars.

The doctor had advised 2 weeks of rest.
But he knew how to put that knee to the test.

Gutsy move.  I would have followed the doctor's suggestion. 

I saw him. The pros were starting out on their run at about the time I was coming back on mine. He whizzed by, with a very smooth gait, looking like a man on top of the world.

I think he saw that prize
floating before his eyes.
