RIP Larry, you inspired me to run, you are the reason I'm coaching today.
I'll miss you.
Yeah, seems like a fair amount of good runners have been dropping dead or nearly dead on runs in the last several years. Kinda scary. As far as New England, there was a long time runner (more recreational I think) and lawyer from lynn (forget his name) who dropped dead running in breakheart reservation in Saugus, MA a few years ago . And then Lou Ristiano (sp?) nearly dropped dead during a run (was very lucky to receive immediate treatment). Of course Alberto nearly died. And there have been others.
I don't get ir! Eddie Sheehan, Andy palmer. Larry... guys I have raced/trained with super strong super fit why do they give out while these unfit nobodys live on???
