Hi everyone, l am at this moment struggling to put into words what l have just been through.As l carry on now telling you all, l don't want to put anyone off running.
Last Thursday l was sorting out all the domestic work in the house, in the morn before l was going on my very last run; suddenly l got a severe pain inthe chest and head was spinning.I sat down for while got up decided to phone doc; when he told me to phone for an ambulance, l was in shock and disbelief.The result ,l was having a problem with my heart.Went by blue light to hospital.Having spent the night there,l was told that l have an enlarged aorta.l thought this would be due to me starting running again,but apparently l have had similar episodes in the past which l thought nothing of! The hospital doc said that because l always been fit and healthy it would have helped then.But now, having had all those inthe past and now am older my body cannot cope anymore. l have been diagnosed with" Ascending Aortic Aneurism ".l was being a pest in hospital asking if l can carry- on running,they agreed,as long as l do'nt chase after any Times now or enter any races.l was happy with that as l love running.Unfortunately l do'nt think l can do that last run, am scared that,as l run alone l do' nt want any thing tohappen . Am happy just to shrt gentle jogs near where l live.Stevy.
