Grateful to be able to start a new year!

  I am 43 and in August of 2010 suffered sudden cardiac arrest after Mt. Biking.  I was extremely fortunate that another rider who had just finished the same time knew CPR and got on me immediately.  I was shocked back by the paramedics and taken to St. Vincents Hospital in Indianapolis.  I then spent 10 days on life support while using Therapeutic Hypothermia.  After coming off the respirator I spent a few more days in the hospital a week at home and then had a Quintuple Bypass.  Recovery since has went extremely well.  I am back to riding, running and swimming with the goal of a Tri in the next year or so.  I would love to get more involved with SCA but am not sure where to start.  Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.
