A San Francisco anesthesiologist dressed as Elvis Presley “D[idn’t] Think Twice” and came to the aid of a collapsed runner at Las Vegas’ Rock-and-Roll half marathon. Claudio Palma, M.D., dressed in jumpsuit, long sideburns and scarf, (and maybe “Blue Suede Shoes” or even “High-Heeled Slippers,” who knows) administered CPR to the passed-out young lady. Startled upon her revival, the runner said she was O.K. and bid farewell to the look-alike who “Return[ed] to Sender” with the other runners. To cap off the day, Palma “D[id] the Vega,” and got married at a run-through chapel.
