Oldest NYC marathon runner dies

This just seems to be a classic runner story - the woman falls at mile 20 and is told to go to the hospital but wants to finish the marathon!

It would seem she followed the best way to live:  "Play Hard.  Drop Dead."

I had seen this story a couple days after NYC.  Kind of sad, but she died living her life to the fullest and doing what she loved.  If I am going to go, I'd want to go out doing what I love to do.
