I guess you never know.
It's so weird that someone in that great shape would die so early. I feel so bad for his family I'd still rather take my chances on trying to stay in shape, though. I figure it's a no-lose situation because it just feels so good to have that endurance to push through on a long paddle, or that exhilaration of just breathing in the air and stretching your legs on a good hike through the woods. Even if you can't live forever, I figure why not enjoy the ol' bod while you're here. Sounds like he really did that with a lot of discipline.
