    A lot of people die trying to get healthy. For one, I’m thinking of Paul Fixx, whose book on running started the jogging craze, so of course he died while jogging.

    That would be Jim Fixx

    Yes, lots of over-achiever runners die of heart problems because they have depleted their bodies of essential minerals to keep their heart muscle healthy.

    One man’s addiction is another man’s pleasure……or some such platitude.

    True. Paul Fixx (properly, Paul Fix) was an actor best known for playing in a lot of Westerns (and was notably “Marshal Micah Torrance” on the TV series The Rifleman) and for essaying the role of “Dr. Mark Piper” in the second pilot of Star Trek.

    Yep, I get my exercise serving as a pallbearer for friends who exercise.

    Heart disease ran in Jim Fixx’ family. His father died several years younger than Jim. But keep thinking of excuses not to exercise, and send me some, too.
