I just found out that one of my running friends and age group competitor died of a heart attack while training for Boston. Bob Kosens was a regular at all of the local races and group training runs.
I can honestly say that Bob was doing what he loved when he was taken from us. The really bad part about it is he was discovered in the restroom of a local running trail alone. I'm not sure of what transpired and even if having someone around would have mattered.
I always used to crack on Bob for his well groomed hair, that never was out of place and always the same dark Clairol color.
Bob will be truly missed but as I said on Facebook, I'm sure that God must have had an opening on his relay team.
