This is very sad news. For Carolyn to be gutsy enough to start a new life in Santa Barbara and take on marathon running was so inspiring! Another senseless death at the hands of a drunk or drugged driver is so frustrating. Why do the good die at the hands of idiots?

My deepest condolences to Carolyn's family
