Another marathoner dies of sudden cardiac death

This one in Dallas.


But get this idiot blogger questioning the health benefits of exercise:
Did being an athlete prolong his life? Or somehow short-circuit it?
I finished three marathons last millennium and fancied trying another last year until I got busy taking on a new job and dropping a wife.
Stories like this always make me stop and ponder:
A. Do we actually increase our life span by working out and eating healthy and not smoking?
B. Or will fate/destiny/God simply take us when it's time, regardless of our lifestyle?
