    Tell that to the two people who just died during the Philadelphia Marathon and the ten others who were hospitalized. Dying running a marathon is the second dumbest way to die, during Black Friday shopping is the first.

    Now that's not saying I never run anywhere. I do a little bit of jogging and biking, but the long distance thing is ridiculous. People's toenails fall off doing that. Oh, and they die.

    Depends on whether you get the genuine Swiss version or a Chinese fake off E-bay.

    I think you might be right, LM. I mean, those pesky wildebeast are smart as hell!

    I'd put dying on the couch with Cheeto stains on your fingers ahead of both of those.

    Guys, I really really really do understand that there was a hack and that my password was reset, but I'm about to take a year off from WUS if you can't stop telling me about it every time I log in. With my password. That you reset.

    At least that person died comfortably and relaxed.

    I can't believe that someone is actually arguing that not excersizing is somehow better or more desirable than excersizing.

    Cheetoman's resting heartrate probably exceeds mine when jogging. Is that relaxed? I feel terrible on the couch and great in the ring. Probably picked up a new scar tonight.

    I learned a little while ago that the more you put into life the more you get out of it. The good news is anyone who can be talked into not exercising so easily wasn't in any danger of running marathons anyway.

    I wear my Omega 2254 on the treadmill quite often. It's still running fine. Just make sure you rinse it off after to get rid of any sweat smells.

    As far as I know, the only sport that automatic/manual winding watches shouldn't be subjected to is golf. Apparently that sport will kill an automatic/manual winding watch fast.

    I go for a run on most mornings, and I almost always wear my Seiko Pepsi. I did it with my old Pepsi for about 5 years, until I lost it, and I've done it with my new one for about a year now. So far, I've had no problems whatsoever, and it still continues to keep excellent time.

    My wife and I usually take our dogs, and they love running along the water. My watch has taken one hell of a beating with sand, water, throwing frisbees at the water, and running, and still keeps going strong.

    Off topic, but have you read Christopher McDougall's Born to Run? Excellent book!

    I used to love long distance running and rock climbing, until I had a terrible heel injury. The worst part? I had to wear some ugly looking rubber-soled dress shoes.

    These days, I just stick to P90X, swimming, and morning runs. Still, I love HIIT -- it is one of the most underrated workouts. Few workouts surpass the rush from a good hour of HIIT.
