Why 3 marathoners died in the detroit marathon Have you heard about this?

"A 26-year-old half-marathon runner, and two other runners — a 36-year-old and 65-year-old — died during the event. Though autopsy results are pending, experts say the most likely cause of death while running such a strenuous race is one related to heart disease."

Health professionals also say that this tragedy is most likely a "coincidence" and "fluke" that all three runners died on Sunday. The reporters were also quick to point out that this is a rare occurrence and does not happen very often during a marathon.

It is believed that most marathoners training programs gradually improve their cardiovascular system and as a result prepare their bodies for the 26.2 mile race.

Since this is such a heated topic right now, I’d like to get your opinion on whether or not you think marathon long distance training is healthier than being sedentary most days of the week?
