Finally, some common sense.

One person died and hundreds were hospitalized during the Chicago marathon last Sunday, when temperatures were unseasonably warm and water supplied by the race organizers ran out. Immediately after this story broke, I wondered, "Why didn't they just stop running?!" It just seems unfathomable that you would run until the point of total exhaustion, unless you were being chased by a bear or an ax murderer. Finally, someone in the media is asking this question. "If the water supply runs short, here's a helpful hint: Stop running. It's just a race. Don't die for it."
