Kevin, I went to the site to submit a recommendation for you but it says entrants are only allowed one recommendation each... I'd be honored to do this for you if someone else more qualified (and talented) hasn't already but would need a little refreshing on your history to be able to write the kind of recommendation you deserve. If you want me to take a stab at it would you PM me an outline of your history? I remember the basics but the details and timeline are fuzzy.

Thanks Dave, I did PM you. What I wrote I copied below.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the support!!

My History:
2004 diagnosed with a bi-cuspid Aortic valve.

2007 major regurgitation required valve replaced on 6/29/2007 with a mechanical valve. By this time I had already been a life long endurance athlete competing in 6 IM triathlons, 3 marathons, 2 1/2 IM and dozens of other distances in running, biking, and triathlon races.

2008. 7 months after Valve replacement I completed the Miami Marathon in just over 3:30. Then ran with fellow Heart athletes at NJ that spring and ran a 1:29 half marathon. I then completed IM Wisconsin 9/2007 and 4 weeks latter ran Medtronics Twin Cities Marathon in 3:15,qualifying for the Boston Marathon.

2009. I ran Boston for the first time in 3:15(re-qualifying for next year). I then ran The Chicago Marathon that year in 3:09(a life time personal best).

2010. I ran Boston again in under 3:30. Two weeks after, during a routine follow up stress test, I went into non-sustained VT. Follow up test I did the same. After months of tests to figure out cause and another marathon with HEART in Harrisburg. I was diagnosed with a genetic disorder called CPVT.

2011. In January it was finally agreed that an ICD would be essential to guarding me from this potentially deadly arrhythmia.

2012. Return to running and goal and completion of running the Chicago Marathon in 3:46.

2013. Back injury and finally surgery to repair.

2014. Return to fitness and running!! Running Half marathon first week of May. Planning a fall marathon, hopefully Medtronics Twin Cities!

Thanks Dave!!

Wow, Dave beat me to giving a recommendation.
I do hope he mentioned that you are a cutie!

( That was the key that got Russ into the race a couple years ago.  Very Happy  )

Great to see that you are moving along again!!!!
