#CardiovascularChronicles. 2011 Gate River Run. I was wearing #AHA American Heart Association Survivor’s Hat. Two Eagle Scouts flying faster than me. 🙂 I improved my PR but was cautious to avoid high heart beats. Keep running and stay healthy. #HealthyHeartsNews

#CardiovascularChronicles. I ran the Gate River Run on 2010, 2011, and 2012 breaking my own paced PR each time. On 2012 wearing a Sportline watch, heart beats were too high after crossing Heart Bridge. ICD shocked me near the stadium. I slowed down to cross the finish line and it shocked me again. “Lessons from my mended heart” are tough. Living the “second life opportunity” is a challenge. Stay healthy. Take care of your heart. #HealthyHeartsNews

Rainsing awareness about the importance of CPR/AED training. I have worked with the American Heart Association in its efforts to make CPR training part of high school graduation requirements.
