Welcome to Keep Connected Live!
I agree on the running. My step-dad ran for years, and was doing marathons for several years. What it got him was two knee replacements a few years after he stopped. He hobbles now. One of my grandfathers smoked all his life and died of bad heart complications when he was 72. The other did the same, and what killed him was that he got MERSA in the hospital while recovering from a hip replacement when he was 75. Go figure. Incidentally, my maternal grandparents family, everyone smoked heavily, grandfather and three uncles. My grandmother died of throat cancer at 82. She never smoked, but was around them all those years. Not fair.
