The New York Times finally has an anti-marathon story. It profiles Peter Curtin, the 23-year-old who died running the Baltimore Marathon. Doctors were unable to determine the cause of his death. His body just died after running 25 miles. It turns out that Peter was a Princeton graduate and a graduate student at M.I.T. Unlike boxing deaths, which affects the lower classes, marathon deaths affect the SWPL class.
The article also mentions that there were “at least” six other marathon or half-marathon deaths this fall. Will anyone die tomorrow?
