My guess is late 30's, I could be way off though. I'm just takin' a stab in the dark.
Average age of snowboarders, I'd say late teens early 20's.

Again, I'm not sayin' this is correct. That's just my guess.

Snowboarding has only been around for 25 years.....

A marathon is not extreme, there is no risk of losing your life. Difficult sure.
One wrong split second decision while running a marathon, will not result in death.

Wow this is an ignorant statement.

2 runners die during Philadelphia Marathon - CNN

You clearly have no idea the strain a marathon puts on your body....

I don't believe there are any split second decisions that need to be made whilst running on a set course, unless taking the wrong way down a fork in the road causes a disqualification.

I watched a show about wolves vs big cats, I can't remember the exact cat they were talking about but anyway.
Cats can jump incredibly high because they have muscle structure built for explosive instant power, because of that they can't maintain that explosive power for more than a short time.

Wolves on the other hand, have similar muscle structure to humans.
They don't have that explosive power, neither do we. They are built for the long haul & can run for hours chasing something down. A cat could never do that, wolves have way more endurance than cats.
We can't jump 15 feet into the air, but we can run for great distances.

For the record, soccer isn't gay. I like soccer.
I love football, played till I was 21. It's the best team sport in the world, imo.
If you viciously tackled a pedestrian on the street, you'd likely go to jail.
Because they would be FUCKED UP, it is a violent game, meant for real men.
I can't think of many sports where a broken limb just requires a cast but you still play with a broken limb.

I can't believe that came out of your mouth. If it ain't a mans sport, could you please tell me which sport is manlier?
NFL Hardest Hits of All Time - YouTube
Go to a high school football game & say that. They aren't even men yet.
I doubt you make it out of there alive.

Ok, I'm not even arguing with someone with logic so I'm done. But just so you know, hockey players take slapshots to the face and shake it off. The puck has twice the momentum of a .45. I'd love to see a football players jump in front of a shot.

Well that's really more of a cultural thing than a fitness thing.

I'm talking about the 70-80 year olds that ski that I'm sure could not complete a tough murder.

Yes you're right, I should have said 'mainstream'.

That was a pretty vague article, but from what little was there, it was an open marathon.

"is open to all competitors" as participants do not have to have a qualifying time to enter.

They may have been way out of their element & should never have entered?
I don't know, there could be other factors as well?

You could do the same run on a treadmill, with the same consequences.
Does that make you an EXTREME athlete?

Way more people die of heart attacks while golfing than in marathons.'
Are they extreme athletes?

Just because something puts an incredible strain on your body, that alone doesn't qualify you as an extreme athlete.

That's pretty much the exact definition of an extreme athlete....

Please sir then define for me what makes an extreme athlete? Are you extreme since you side slip down the slope?

You can disagree with Timmy all you want but knock off the ad hominem attacks.....
It has nothing to do with swearing. Its that your swearing doesn't constitute reasoning no matter how much you want it to.
