American diet unhealthy
Re “Exhaustion, joy at the finish line” (Page A1, Dec. 8): Congratulations to the foreign runners who won the California International Marathon. The Bee ought to ask these winners what their eating and lifestyle habits are, especially since they’re probably way different than what Americans have become accustomed to.
For instance, I can imagine the Kenyan Jacob Chemtai probably never drinks commercial sports drinks, colas or sodas or eats fast food. Americans have become the laziest and fattest people on Earth, and they need to re-learn how to be athletically competitive in comparison to other nations.
