Just fitness doesn't cut it...
Being fit didn't stop Dave McGillivray from getting heart disease...
"“I’m from that ‘Leave It to Beaver’ era,” he said. “You know, meat and potatoes. I was hard-core. That’s what I ate, what I lived on. I always felt like if the furnace was hot enough, it would burn everything. And I never really gained any weight, so I wasn’t showing signs that what I was eating was hurting me."
From the Boston Herald:
Dave McGillivray fights heart disease
Running out of trouble
A couple of days ago, I asked a friend if he knows who Dave McGillivray is.
“Of course,” said my friend. “He’s the guy who runs.”
That’s Dave McGillivray, all right. He’s the guy who runs.
As in he once ran across the United States to raise money for the Jimmy Fund. As in he’s completed hundreds of marathons. And numerous Ironman competitions.
