Runner Collapses on Cardiac Hill with Heart Attack

How appropriate is that?  I just love a good irony, and this is certainly one. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution has the details of the Peachtree Road Race from Wednesday morning:

A 65-year-old man collapsed with a heart attack just after completing the famed Cardiac Hill portion of the Peachtree Road Race on Wednesday morning.

Paramedics on bikes rushed to assist the man, whose heart had stopped and a representative of Piedmont Hospital confirmed that he was in stable condition after surgery to clear a blocked artery.

I applaud the efforts of the weekend warrior for trying to complete the race.  But there’s something about a runner collapsing on a famed “Cardiac Hill” with a heart attack that tickles me.  Sorry.  Maybe if he had on a slick pair of sneakers he would’ve been better off.   Happy 4th buddy, good thing he’s in stable condition.
