Jessica, your story is inspiring, and I've shared it with others. I'm 11 months after the heart attack, and just summited my first mountain since, Mt Baldy. I remember when I thought Mt Baldy was easy, a piece of cake, but I have a bit more respect now. Getting in appx 60 to 75 miles a month right now, plus the gym, so looks like my heart is happy. Bigger goals now, and inspiration from people like you make my brain get back on track and help me worry less.

Inspiring thread!

So glad for the success stories!

Joe, glad you are feeling stronger. We bumped into each other in 2012, in the ESIAVC, and on the Summit after the Mountaineer's Route. Maybe we will bump into each other again.

I appreciate all the posts and support on this site.
Not a summit, but just as important to me. I called this the "F#(% Heart Attacks" hike, as it's been one year since my heart attack. I've overcome cancer, a new hip, but this one, well just a bit more special, as heart attacks effect your brain, your thoughts. My best friend DJ was there with me, he had no worries, and he's always been there every time I needed a summit, or just needed a hand. My love A.M. was at home, and I know she worries about her crazy man. She also knows me, and supported me every day, and knows I don't give up. Cell service was good, so texted and called her from the e-ledges, and from Lower Boy Scout. Doug and Erlene were there too, and the support I got from so many people to get past my "head", humbles this guy. Yea, we've summited this mountain a bunch of times, both the MR and the main trail, but this one was special. "F#(% Heart Attacks"
