You’ve likely read the sad news from this weekend in the world of distance running: Three relatively young men died on Sunday while running in otherwise festive, long-distance races in London and Raleigh, North Carolina. At the 34th London Marathon, where 36,000 runners participated on Sunday, the post-race death of a 42-year-old man was the event’s second death in three years. In North Carolina, two men died, age 31 and 35, after collapsing at or near the end of the 13.1-mile, half-marathon of the capital city’s inaugural Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon. A combined 12,500 runners participated in the Raleigh events.
