Episode 73: BONUS episode-Tim O'Donnel's heart attack, what does this mean for the rest of us?

In this BONUS episode:

Tim O'Donnell had a heart attack during a race and just recently announced this to the world. Now, collectively, the triathlon world is quite justifiably freaking out. If this happened to him then couldn't it happen to anyone? In this special bonus episode I discuss what it all means and why most people don't really need to worry. I am also joined by interventional cardiologist Dr. Matt Holland to discuss some of the nuances of what Tim disclosed in his video and leave you with some important take home points of what you should consider going forward to remain healthy.
