Shame on the participants of this roundtable discussion of the the runner's heart. You know that you should have had an indepth discussion on the latest research pertaining to Atrial Fibrillation (AFIB) instead of just a brief mention. You know that (AFIB) is the biggest threat to the runner's heart..... Shame on "The Runner's World Show" for broadcasting this show. You should do a show on AFIB based on the research. Instead you chose to air this garbage.
