Do not, I repeat do not put off taking care of your health and learn the warning signs of serious health issues such heart attacks and strokes today.

We lost a friend and fellow racer yesterday who was only 39 from a massive heart attack. He left behind a wife and two young sons. He died one day after his wedding anniversary. His last Facebook post read, “Today fourteen years ago I married my sweetheart..........Love Ya Honey...........”

He raced a three day race over the holiday weekend. We weren’t there, but others said he was complaining of having really bad heartburn and not feeling well. Later in the week on his way to work he started feeling really bad. He went to the ER and collapsed in the doorway. They were not able to revive him.

The world lost a good man, husband and father.

Please learn the signs, talk to your doctor, get a checkup, change your eating habits and start exercising. There are so many people who love you and count on you, don’t let them down.
