- My #1 goal is to stay healthy by eating a good diet and getting regular exercise.

In June of 2003 I was at 180 lbs-5'9" and I ate a very good diet. I had my blood checks in May and everything was good. I rode bike three or four times per week. The rides had average trips of about 35-50 miles each.

Yet, on June 4th, 2003 I had a stroke. A stoke either has too much blood in the brain or less blood than is needed. 80% of people who have a stroke are from less of blood. Just eating an aspirin daily isn't sufficient.

My sport keeps me to eat a good diet but it doesn't prevent a stroke.
