good info Ginger. I heard about the guy from PowerBar dying relatively young. Too bad these people think they are really healthy and they have really damaged themselves doing things they thought would help.

Many people in the medical industry feel that the risks of long distance running outweigh the benefits. When you put yourself on the physical edge like that, it messes with the potassium and sodium balance in your body, which can distress the heart. The founder of PowerBar dropped dead at the post office a couple of years ago with a sudden heart attack, at the age of 51. He was the #3 marathon runner in the world when he was a younger Olympian. A lot of marathons now have a half-marathon incorporated, and allow walking at a fast clip, so you can enjoy the thrill with less risk.

haha Novaraen!! Funny! Tom is a weirdo, I'd love to know the real truth behind him, it's like he's one of the mysteries of the world.

Honestly, no bra? I dont see any sports bra straps and those tanks with built in bras arent gonna cut it for a marathon. I saw another horrid shot of her running which isnt posted here...her boobs were like sagging majorly!!! She's a robot im telling you, the girl went to Tom's private movie screening afterwards. No human could do that!! ;) I think Tom stole her bras all for

Greggie just curious, what health histories have you seen of people considering the HIPPA laws have made it illegal to do that unless you have written permission from the patient to view their files or if it's directly connected to doing your job? I just think it would be tough to see every one's health histories and know that running is safe based off of that. I don't think that it's even possible to see everyone's health histories. statistics i can see, but not health histories.

I had a supervisor who was 43 yrs old and died 3 yrs ago 18 hours after finishing a marathon. He was the picture of health and always watched what he ate and was an avid health nut. His autopsy said it was "exercise induced hypertension" that lead to his stroke then death. There's a good article that talks about the dangers of marathons and excessive exercise. It was posted on a Chevron Marathon web site. ______________________________________________________ Coronary heart disease in marathon runners. Noakes T, Opie L, Beck W, McKechnie J, Benchimol A, Desser K. Six highly trained marathon runners developed myocardial infarction. One of the two cases of clinically diagnosed myocardial infarction was fatal, and there were four cases of angiographically-proven infarction. Two athletes had significant arterial disease of two major coronary arteries, a third had stenosis of the anterior descending and the fourth of the right coronary artery. All these athletes had warning symptoms. Three of them completed marathon races despite symptoms, one athlete running more than 20 miles after the onset of exertional discomfort to complete the 56 mile Comrades Marathon. In spite of developing chest pain, another athlete who died had continued training for three weeks, including a 40 mile run. Two other athletes also continued to train with chest pain. We conclude that the marathon runners studied were not immune to coronary heart disease, nor to coronary atherosclerosis and that high levels of physical fitness did not guarantee the absence of significant cardiovascular disease. In addition, the relationship of exercise and myocardial infarction was complex because two athletes developed myocardial infarction during marathon running in the absence of complete coronary artery occlusion. We stress that marathon runners, like other sportsmen, should be warned of the serious significance of the development of exertional symptoms. Our conclusions do not reflect on the possible value of exercise in the prevention of coronary heart disease. Rather we refute exaggerated claims that marathon running provides complete immunity from coronary heart disease.

i agree spitfire i have a family full of EX-runners and athelets. my father was a runner back in the day when it really started taking off in the 1970's and he's had 2 knee replacement surgeries which took a huge toll on him, multiple joint problems, he has high blood pressure and already had 2 stints put in. He lived a healthy lifestyle, but in his mid 40's the pain started in his knees and lower back, he put off surgery for almost 10 years but couldn't deal the pain anymore, his doctor said that it was directly related to his running days.

I'll agree to disagree, spitfire. I've seen statistics and the health history of the people, rather than statistics based on marathon running alone.

lol I thought you would say that Greggie since your husband is a marathon runner...but hate to tell you all the training and eating right will not stop the damage to the knees, ankles, all joints in general that comes with long distance the strain it puts on the heart,lungs, and vessels...look at the statistics. I beg to differ with you in that the people that are dying young didn't properly train right or had other unknown heart problems. I'm a nurse and I have a whole file on people who have had cardiac arrest, aneurysms, or strokes during marathons and heavy workouts with no other morbidities found. Even the eating right holds no water with one time they said don't eat it's known fat has a very important purpose in our bodies and none of the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K)will even absorb without some amount of fat...I can give you thousands of examples of people who eat right, don't drink, don't smoke, that are still dying and getting cancer at a high rate..but the stress and damage that marathon running does to your body can not be disputed. The marathon races originted in ancient Greece, when an Athenian soldier ran that distance to deliver a message. He then died on arrival. That would tell me something right there...most orthopedic doctors say running marathons are not worth the risk or damage that it does to the body. People just want to do it for the thrill of having the drive to keep going and not surrendering...not because it has any amount of health benefits..because it does not. It stresses out almost every single joint, muscle, and system in the body.
