It wasn’t a fire or smoke alarm that startled Jack Grugin from his sleep one night about 10 years ago.
A retired US Army lieutenant colonel who flew helicopters during the Vietnam War, Grugin awoke that morning to a severe thunderstorm, went to work, came home, had dinner, watched a little TV and hit the sack.
“I woke up, rolled over and it was 10:30,” Grugin, 67, said. “I sat up and said, ‘Oh, my gosh, I haven’t run today!’ and got up and ran.
