  1. We do not do your homework for you. Although it might take more effort to do the work on your own, you will profit more from your effort. We will be happy to evaluate your work though.

    However, it might help to consider the questions below.

    1. Are runners more likely to avoid negative aspects for health, like obesity and smoking?

    2. Are the ages equivalent? Is retirement chosen or forced?

    For question #2, are you saying that there are other variables that need to be considered?
