Dear Medtronic

Hey Medtronic:

I ran 5 miles over lunch today. In the pouring rain. Did I mention it's 46 degrees today? Guess what?

I didn't die.

Just thought you'd want to know.



PS. Did you get my e-mail today? The one where I said you guys are uncool? I thought that was a little nicer than saying you "suck," though I don't regret putting that in the blog. Just wondered, since nobody wrote me back.


  1. I just read that post . . . WTF?!? Definitely not cool, homie! You tell em! ;-)

    I have to agree with you on this. Why would Medtronic place this restriction on a diabetic runner. I don't get it. Keep on running Marcus.

  3. Marcus -

    Also -sorry to do this, but you my fast friend, have been tagged!

    6 word memoir.
    You know the one, where you
    1) Write your own six word memoir
    2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want
    3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
    4) Tag at least five more blogs with links; and
    5) Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!


  4. Hey, Marcus,
    Please see this:

    Medtronic has updated the Global Heroes guidelines page with a "Learn more" link next to the rule about diabetics over 40.

    More silliness. I just wish they would. Learn more, that is.

  5. Thanks for the update, Jerry!
