From the "That sucks!" file

Heart patient dies day after bike trek May 02, 2005(AP)
A man who pedaled across the country after heart bypass surgery gave him a second chance at life has died of a heart attack—one day after completing the 3,800-km trip. Broc Bebout, a 57-year-old retired engineer, died Thursday on the van drive back to his home in Anderson—one day after completing the ride from Carlsbad, Calif. to Brunswick, Ga. His wife, Patricia Brinkman, said bicycling became Bebout’s ticket to nearly 20 years of good health after quadruple-bypass surgery at age 39. He also learned to eat right and take care of himself, she added. In an e-mail to her Wednesday before a celebratory steak dinner, Bebout described what the trip had meant to him: “An incredible experience with incredible people.” “It was a trip of a lifetime,” she said. “We all have a list of things we like to say we did. That was right up there at the top.”

I actually read this as I was eating a Big Mac. That sucks!
