My Dad and I constantly email articles back and forth about running, different races we want to run and even our own personal race goals. We are each others running partners and when I run with my Dad it is never about beating each other (although he does like to brag that he has beaten me ina few races due to my knee issues). So today I opened up my email to see an article from him about Marathon Running and how it leads to an increased risk of heart failure. Oh great... Is this him sending me a subtle message? But I read the article and would like to know what you think!
Here's the link: Healthier Talk
So I want to know...
- Do you agree with the article?
- Does it change your mind about running these long distances?
- Will you continue to run Marathons, 1/2 Marathons, Ultramarathons?
- How far is too far?
