I'm not sure about other areas but we seem to be having a rash of runners dying! Which may or may not be unusual.Here is another story that I've been made aware of and the request from the family:
This is a request that the Race director for the Shamrock N Roll received via email yesterday: 'My father ran the 10k Shamrock and Roll run on Sunday. He was running Monday night and was found on the sidewalk where he had passed away. He was
really proud of his T-shirt from the race but unfortunately the EMS had to rip it up in
attempts to bring him back. I was wondering if there was a way for me to get
another shirt in remembrance of his last run?' This guy was 52 years young!
Are we kidding ourselves into thinking that just because we run or workout that everything is okay? Are our doctors excluding certain test because of our outward appearance and the fact that we maintain a somewhat healthy lifestyle???
Could some of these deaths be averted?
Should I schedule a stress test?
Should I be asking my doctor certain cardiac related questions?
Let's not kid ourselves to an early demise...........
