My name is Mark. I survived at Heart Attack at age 35. I am now a single 39 year year old Heart Attack Survivor. My friends call me Mini. It is a nickname that i received in my 20’s from a friend who was a foot taller- we just happened to shave our heads at the same time…..then it happened- he called me his mini me and the name has stuck ever since.
I am a runner, a dodgeball player ( yes, 7 years- in a league !), fairly physically active person. I have run 5 half marathons, two 5 k races and 22 miles of a marathon ( there will be a post on this. My favorite places to do races are in Disney world and Disneyland- RunDisney. I love getting that bling !
So why is outlining all of the fitness “stuff ” ?
Because I am also a Heart Attack Survivor at the age of 35. August 11, 2013. My life changed. I have had to figure out a new normal.
This blog has been created to allow me to share stories and speak of topics that intrigue my mind. This is meant as a brain release for me, so that maybe I can sleep at night knowing I have shared my opinion or my thoughts- rather than keep them inside.
All the things I mentioned are a mere part of who I am, they don’t necessarily define me, nor are they the be all and end all of my being. Join me on my journey and hopefully you will find something worth reading as I go along.
