Despite being good for you, high intensity exercise can pose risks to susceptible individuals. Deaths, while rare, do occur with some degree of frequency during all manner of endurance events and triathlon has the unfortunate distinction of having a higher death rate than other types of events mostly because of the risks associated with the swim. On this episode, the TriDoc answers a listener question related to this unfortunate trend. How much risk is there really and what can the average athlete do about it? Heath Dotson, National Masters Champion on the track and co-founder of the AeroCamp joins me for a discussion of all things aero. The Triathlete Routard goes to Texas to review the Buffalo Springs race now known as Ironman 70.3 Lubbock
