Hi folks, my new life has grown in response to my abdominal aortic aneurysm, self-diagnosed, and subsequently confirmed by ultrasound, in August 2010. I found this life-threatening aortic defect only two weeks after finishing the Lake Placid Ironman race for the fourth consecutive year, and in my best time so far. The discovery of my aneurysm, and the consequent aortic stent graft placement, scared me to death, so at that time I was focused on reaching out for someone to talk to about my situation. Those days are now, fortunately, behind me and I have overcome fear of stent failure with the help of a number of supportive people with similar issues that I located via my blog, athletewithstent.com. I am now converting my into an information resource for older people, such as boomers, who wish to exercise safely and those trying to get their lives back on track after aortic surgery. I place some emphasis on endurance sports with special reference to health challenges that might cause people to give up on sports and the dream of being an athlete. It is never too late to train, and we can all be athletes in our own way, just for the joy of it. The trick is to develop a balanced exercise philosophy.
