His chances of suffering a massive heart attack seemed remote. He was Alberto Salazar, after all, three-time New York Marathon winner. And then he died.
When you go out for a run, you expect to come back.

  Running is healthy. It makes your body and mind feel good. You’re no couch potato. You don’t smoke. You eat healthy. You are a runner, and you are doing everything right for your good health.

And yet every year thousands of seemingly healthy people — from high school football players to adult recreational athletes — die from cardiac arrest. Legendary marathoner Alberto Salazar was one of them — he was clinically dead for 14 minutes.
After more than 5 minutes without a pulse, one can expect brain damage. After 10 minutes without a fresh supply of blood to the brain, you die — at least 99 percent of people do. But Salazar didn’t. He walked away — saved by an inexplicable combination of science and grace.
Are you living your life to the fullest? Are you making every day count?
In his fascinating memoir, 14 Minutes, Salazar shares his lessons from a life of running and what 14 minutes of death taught him about second chances. It’s a rich life story chronicling Salazar’s tempestuous relationship with his father, a former friend of Fidel Castro; his high school years training with the legendary Greater Boston Track Club; his unhealthy obsession to train through pain; and his dramatic wins in New York, Boston, and South Africa, all set against the backdrop of the history of the late-’70s running boom and the colorful races of the next four decades.
