This is amazing. I've run Bay to Breakers like a dozen plus of the 22 years I've lived in San Francisco. But this guy 44 years of a race that's much more difficult.

Google: Chico Scimone Empire State Building

He used to participate in the Empire State Building Run Up. As is required on Fark, there are a series of astounding additions to that.

Good to see that his lesson was that he should have listened to his body, stopped running, and gone to the ER right away. Words to remember for both chest pain and stroke symptoms.

Perhaps, but the symptoms aren't always easy to identify.

When you're involved in the physical activity, chest pain can be attributed to many things, and generally you're not expecting that it is a heart attack.  It's odd to note that the chest pain seems more intense when you're at rest than when you're active.

In hindsight you can say "Yeah, I probably should have called the ambulance", but at the time you generally don't think heart attack.   And yes, call the ambulance, unless you want a proper scolding when you arrive at the ER.
