Man Dies While Doing a 10-K

Sorry about the potentially downbeat topic here, but I came across this article about a 70 year old man who died doing what he loved – running.

I wanted to post this for no other reason that to highlight the fact that this gentleman was 70 years old and still racing. He was out there trying his best but it just happened to be his time during this race. I sincerely hope that when I am 70, I too am still running.

I hope that the media does not talk about this in terms of asking why this man was still running at his age, trying to put a negative spin on it. They need to portray it for what it is…motivation for continuing our sport so that we too can still run late into our years.
