This is the third year I have walked in the American Heart Association 2009 Start! San Diego Heart Walk. Unlike the past years, it was a hot and humid morning. Like the past years there were hundreds of people walking.
This year my mom walked with me. My family heart history on her side is peppered with heart disease and strokes. My mom herself has battled high blood pressure for years. Because of this I pay close attention to my blood pressure.
Like every other time in my life my mom has supported me. Today we crossed the finish line together. Together we can change our family heart history.
