My story

My new birthday is October 28, 2015.
At the time of my event, I was 55 years old. I was an active runner who enjoyed participating in multiple 5k races throughout the year. In the year before my event, I had taken up swimming as my son, who was in his second year of college, had been a high school swimmer. I thought swimming would be less wear and tear on my joints. My usual routine was to swim three days a week and run three days a week; this kept me fit although I always had about ten pounds to lose. I did have high blood pressure for which I took medication. I also had somewhat high cholesterol for which I did nothing as I did not like the body aches associated with the medication.
In the days/week leading up to 10/28/15 I had developed a head cold. On October 27, 2015 I decided to go out for a run on my usual course. As I was heading back I remember seeing my wife's car drive off from our house on her way to work. Just a usual day except the head cold.
