    Apparently, he collapsed somewhere after mile 5 from a heart attack, and was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

    Undoubtedly, autopsy will show that he had a pre-existing heart condition, which is usually the reason a runner, especially at his level of fitness and training, could possibly have this happen.

    Keep his wife and family in your prayers.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    I always hate it when these sort of things happen. This guy takes care of his body is in better shape than 99% of the population and this happens to him. Some people sit on their asses their whole lives eating doughtnuts and big macs and live to see 80....no justice.

    The initial reports are inconclusive for cause of death - further review to follow yet. He had an enlarged heart but had been cleared for competition. This kind of stuff happens frequently in other sports, too. When it happens, it's usually due to pre-existing conditions. The young cop who died in Chicago last month had a common heart valve condition. The brutal heat conditions combined with his medical condition spelled disaster for him. Thankfully no one else died in the heat. Several thousand people had heat related issues, me included. But death is not that common in these events.
