In September 2004 I had a transient ischemic attack. Since then, I have thankfully recovered and have not let it stop my dreams. Despite a partial knee replacement, I have participated in four Ironman competitions which consists of 2.4 swim, 112 mi bike and 26.2 run. I only failed to complete 1 under the time allowed, and that day it was 97 degrees, but no excuse. I pulled out with 12 miles to go. Two months later, I completed another one and have since crossed Ironman off my list. This summer I am making plans to bicycle the Trans American route 4300 miles. Oregon to Virgina. I realize how lucky I am, and so far my doctor has blessed me on my endeavors no matter how crazy he thinks they are.
