Over the past year, there have been several tragedies involving long distance running. As a result, I've been on the receiving end of dismissive comments and criticisms regarding my endurance efforts. But these condemnations overlook the fact that people who exercise and are fitter are LESS likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease and die suddenly than people who do not. The benefits of regular exercise deserve to be acknowledged--exercise is not dangerous, it's highly beneficial and that should never be forgotten.
