While a student at Hagerstown Community College, Carol Grove said her father wasn't exactly thrilled when she decided to change her major from business to nursing. Today, 14 years later, the Washington County Hospital nurse educator is thankful she did. She never dreamed she'd use her training to save her father's life. It happened on May 20, 2003, a day Grove and her family say they never will forget. "It was pretty bad. It was pretty scary," Grove said, recalling the ordeal that started with a phone call from her mother, Gloria "Jean" Shives.

Tina Larrick wasn't feeling well. She thought she might be getting the flu. But it was her daughter's birthday - a time to celebrate - so she tried to ignore her symptoms. Heading to bed that night, she expected she would sleep well. What she wasn't expecting was a heart attack. At the age of 38, Larrick was shocked to learn she had heart disease. "My father had had open-heart surgery. His father died from a heart attack when he was 52, but I thought my brothers would be at risk for similar problems - not me," the Boonsboro resident said.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Melinda Ocker's fingers clenched a crumpled tissue on what she described as a very emotional day. All around her was bustling activity, with music spilling from speakers and children tossing footballs across the lawn. But Ocker's thoughts were far away -- to the infant she lost to a heart defect and to her brother-in-law recovering from last month's heart attack. Ocker's family members displayed baby Benjamin's name on their clothing to honor his memory during the 16th annual Mason-Dixon Start!

During the more than two decades that her parents owned and operated Rocco's Italian-American Family Restaurant in Hagerstown's East End, Diana Burke spent countless hours there - working, sitting down for important family discussions, celebrating holidays and other special occasions. Still, she never really thought about taking over the family business, which recently marked 63 years, until March 1998, when her father suffered a heart attack in the midst of her mother's battle with cancer.

He loves to ski and has logged more than 30 scuba dives. And, although he's an attorney by profession, he's a bit of a landscaper - the dirtier the project the better.

At one time, I didn't do cardio training - whatsoever. Then I started getting old. When I was in my 20s, I was perfectly happy being one of the "strong guys" in the gym. Just don't ask me to run a mile. Nowadays, in my late 30s, I've actually learned to appreciate (and enjoy) cardio training activities like rowing, cycling, and boxing. I even designed a 16-week progressive interval training program all my clients must do at least twice per week. But just like me, many people don't give cardio training the time of day. Lemme tell ya why ya should .... Cardiorespiratory training What is cardiorespiratory training?

Twenty-five years ago today, I lost my best friend - my buddy, my confidant, my grandfather. Every Aug. 3, I wake before dawn and think about the man named Theodore Jerome Wells. Most people called him Ted, but I called him whenever I needed a pal. It was easier to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders when I was riding on his. One time a teacher in elementary school asked me to tell about him. "He keeps your motor running," I replied. "Oh, he's a doctor," she said, trying to coax more information from me. I guess you could say that.
