My first half marathon

I woke up around 5:45 on Sunday worried about what I was going to wear more than anything else. I'd never run in temperatures colder than 50 degrees, so how on earth was I going to be prepared for  30?!

Health Beat: Prostate cancer: New look at an old treatment

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among American men. Patients have several different treatment options, including two types of internal radiation therapy: low-dose rate brachytherapy or high-dose rate brachytherapy. Both involve having radioactive seeds implanted near the tumor. For years, very few patients took advantage of the high-dose option, but that may begin to change.
