Marathons and Heart Attacks

Here is a story on the linking of marathons and heat attacks. After years in which almost no deaths were attributed to heart attacks in major US major marathons, at least six runners have died in 2006. It seems the heart may be shocked and at least temporarily traumatized after a marathon. The doctor's interviewed in the article seem to suggest training for the marathon is great but advise you watch the marathon from home. Any lingering problem with your heart will obviously be amplified on race day. Thankfully I now have one more reason to avoid marathoning. ;-)
