The author self-diagnosed an abdominal aortic aneurysm in the summer of 2010, based on two odd symptoms, (1) an abdominal pulse, and (2) severe foot pain in an Ironmman race. The diagnosis was confirmed by his surgeon, and a stent was installed. Since then, he has been working to turn this health setback into an adventure, continuing to compete in triathlons, whilst providing inspiration and motivation to other aortic patients. His goal is to encourage these people to get their life back on track and to be as active as possible.
