People in poor health don't feel good enough to walk.
The people who feel good enough to walk, and who are capable of walking fast...are in good health.

How could it be a surprise that the first group, on average, will die sooner than the second group. It's not the walking that does it.


Ah, but having common sense doesn't get research grant funding.

Didn't read the article in detail, but I suppose if they measured me walking through Athletes' Village on my way to the start line last Monday, it would say that this 62 year old was going to live a long time. But if they measured me walking back to my hotel after I crossed the finish line and got the mylar poncho, it would say I'm gonna die Real Soon Now.
