I saw my cardiologist today for a stress echo treadmill test, just to make sure that there isn't anything going on that would get in the way of a successful 2600 mile bike trip. Fortunately, I passed with flying colors. That is very reassuring for a guy that's been dealing with heart disease for the last 15 years. It was my early inheritance from my dad's side of the family. That's part of the reason why this trip is so special to me; that heart disease does not necessarily restrict us from a physically active, adventurous life when you get the right amount of exercise, watch what you eat and take advantage of some amazing preventive meds. Stay tuned!
