Personally, this is a topic close to home for me. I come from a family that has a history of heart problems, so I know I need to do my part. I try to eat healthy, I don't smoke, and as you can tell from reading this blog, in the past couple of years I've done a much better job of being active. I do love to run. I run for myself and for my family. I run for my health. Every mile is motivated by leading a longer, stronger life with my family.
I'd like to share with you an infographic from the Bankers Healthcare Group and their Take Charge Initiative. It will give you some of the statistics, the symptoms, and most importantly, some of the things you can do to help prevent cardiovascular disease.
