You can run. But you can't hide

We live in an exercise conscious environment.  I try to exercise 4 – 5 times per week and at a pretty good pace.  As an active plastic surgeon, my running days are over but my good friend is getting into marathons.  

Studies have shown that running daily can lower your heart attack risk by nearly 20% over not running at all.  

Hold on, however, running more than 20 miles per week NEGATES – that benefit.  A slow pace jog is good but running an 8 minute mile per mile can actually put extra stress on your heart. 

Again, the old adage – everything in moderation.
