AT 61 I JUST HAD MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH SHORTNESS OF BREATH AND THE OTHER SYMPTOMS OF A HEART ATTACK. THE SHORTNESS OF BREATH PLUS THE OTHER SYMPTOMS DIDN'T SCARE ME. THE PAIN IN MY LEFT SHOULDER AND BACK MADE ME BEG THE EMS GUY TO END IT NOW. I DON'T SAY THIS TO FRIGHTEN ANYONE JUST TO CAUTION FOLKS TO STAY IN SHAPE, GET CHECK UPS AND NEVER IGNORE CHEST PAIN. DEPUTY FIFER,RIP AND BE THERE TO SHAKE MY HAND WHEN I ARRIVE.

It is sad whenever anyone dies in training but someone at such a young age it makes it even more so. It illustrates that cardiovascular health concerns are not confined to those of a certain age but risk factors such as overall health, weight, fitness etc have to be considered.
