Interesting news article:
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Marathon runners face a heightened risk of skin cancer, likely due to more sun exposure or an immune system inhibited by arduous exercise, researchers said on Monday."

Ha, since when?
They go more ga-ga over football, basketball and baseball. Although they are long playing games, they are not considered endurance sports per se.
Now track events, boxing and soccer for example requires a lot of endurance IMO.
