Description

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Brian Maxwell, a former world-ranked marathoner who created the PowerBar in his kitchen to improve his performance and kicked off a sports nutrition revolution in the process, has died of an apparent heart attack, friends said on Sunday. He was 51. Maxwell collapsed on Friday while waiting on line to mail a package at the San Anselmo post office in northern California's Marin County, friends said. He was taken to Marin County General Hospital where he was pronounced dead, a hospital spokeswoman said. Maxwell was jogging and eating breakfast with his family hours before he died, friend and former co-worker Debbie Pfeifer told Reuters. By all appearances he seemed healthy, she said.
