    I was reading the autopsy story on Micah True on RunnersWorld's website http://news.runnersworld.com/2012/05/10/the-micah-true-autopsy-explained/

    I have to say I was a little troubled that it is supposedly a heart issue which occurs in most runners. Was it a product of genetics or perhaps how extreme his training and racing was? Should we be getting scans to check our heart structure to make sure we don't have similar issues?

    Ah, caballo blanco. I was sad to hear that he passed.

    Heart disease is something that can affect anyone, even runners.
