Yep, it happened again.
A 35-year-0ld firefighter from North Carolina died just 500 yards from the finish line. He was running for a charity that helps burn victims.
WHY, WHY, WHY do we allow these marathons to go on. People get seriously injured just training for them. Half the people running them are injured as you can see all the tape and knee braces from the punishing activity.
Then, someone dies. Look, this guy was a firefighter. Odds are, he was in decent shape, but the stress and abuse of the 26.2 mile run killed him.
Marathons Kill. Please help me put a stop to them!!!
