Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest was the third leading cause of “health loss due to disease” in the United States behind ischemic heart disease and low back/neck pain in 2016, according to new research in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.

Dodging the Roadkill: The People I Meet

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The one recurring theme that runs through this blog is the people I meet.  Since the first time I threw my legs over a motorcycle, people came into my life that I would have never met without it. 

My recent trip to Texas was no different.

We started with 7 motorcycles and 8 people.  From the starting point, I immediately met two veterans who were joining us.  Once we reached our destination, I met two more, and our “group” was set.

I’ve been blessed to ride with, and become friends with, first responders, veterans, mothers, sisters, and businessmen. They don’t want anything from me.  They just want to ride.
