Competitive cyclist Brian Fouche has spent more than a decade racing toward finish lines. But two months ago, Fouche found himself racing toward death. "My heart just stopped," Fouche said. Fouche, 28, of Hagerstown, went into cardiac arrest during a Nov. 20 cyclocross race in Howard County, Md. The experience has inspired Fouche to start a blog — "Heart Disease, Racing and All That Other Stuff" at Bafouche.blogspot.com . He's also regained the courage to get back on the bike.

By ELLEN LYON Staff Writer Two years ago Frank Johnson relied on his old Army medic training when he found his fox terrier Snoopy unconscious and not breathing in a pool house filled with gas fumes from a propane heater. Johnson, 68, of Williamsport, massaged the year-old dog's heart and blew air into her nose and mouth while his wife, Patsy, called their veterinarian Dr. Richard Garcia, he said. After several minutes Snoopy's "little stomach started moving" and she began breathing on her own, Johnson recalled.
