#11 Author Of ‘Running’ Died of a Heart Attack While Jogging
A 52-year-old author, James Fixx, who encouraged jogging and inspired people to do it often through his best-selling book, died of a heart attack while jogging. How ironic!
He preached that active people live longer and demonstrated the health benefits of regular jogging. While on his solitary jog in Vermont on a Friday morning, he had a cardiac arrest and ultimately died.
