In early 1999, my dad suffered a heart attack. Thank God he recovered, but it was a real wakeup call for me. Before he left the hospital, I promised myself I'd change my lifestyle. I decided to run the Boston Marathon. It was supposed to be a one time thing, and after the first one I promised myself I'd never do it again, but that wasn't to be the case.
