    Additional Heart Related Post

    There is a great post over on the Colo. regional forum. It's a member and his experience with a heart attack. Take a look at the great info, if you're inclined.

    Heart attacks - a cautionary tale.

    You might steer clear of Ute Valley Park in the Springs too then; a friend of mine came across a rider sitting on the trail there earlier this year who died of a heart attack before the EMT's could get to him. He said the guy appeared 50-ish and very fit.

    At 60, I was over 300 lbs, ate like crap and rarely exercised. 4 years later and ride 12 to 15 hours week. about 210 lbs and eat carefully.

    It would be ironic to die from exercise now.
