  1. Ian-
    In regards to the “Is ultra running bad for us?” question posed, Dr. O’Keefe’s commentary is interesting, but somewhat methodologically flawed, and rather sensationalist. Amongst other things, it’s not scientifically appropriate to speculate about Caballo’s situation and then extrapolate that speculation to all endurance athletes. For a more elegant rebuttal than I’m able to type out here, see a response by Dr. Creswell, a cardiac surgeon. (http://athletesheart.blogspot.com/2012/12/dont-stop-running-yet.html) Long story short, Dr. O’Keefe rightly suggests that this is an area that demands more attention and more research, and endurance athletes may be injuring themselves, but this has not been clearly demonstrated by any means.
    Thanks so much,
    Josh White, MD
