Men Over 40 Should Think Twice Before Running Triathlons “The swim seems to be a particularly dangerous time,” said Andre La Gerche, a cardiologist at Melbourne’s St Vincent’s Hospital and marathoner. “Paradoxically, in the marathon, it’s the opposite: it’s the last mile of the event where the vast majority of fatalities occur.” Researchers speculate that sprinting to the finish produces a rush of adrenalin that may trigger an abnormal rhythm in runners with susceptible hearts.”—Natasha Khan & Shannon Pettypiece, Bloomberg News
Training The Brain “The core lesson taught in Ratey’s Spark was the neuro-chemical response to exercise.

Ratey famously dubbed BDNF “Miracle-Gro” for the brain.“—Chris Cooper for the CrossFit Journal, June 2013
