Jul 3, 2017

After suffering from a heart attack and cardiac arrest, Shane Johnson found himself with a number of side effects and taking 13 different medications. Through changing his nutrition and becoming physically active, including running, he was able to completely turn around his health. Shane has now run a number of marathons and ultramarathons, including the Twin Cities Marathon as a Medtronic Global Hero. His advice for runners is to not ever give up on yourself and to not let a medical diagnosis stop you from living life. Shane’s story provides inspiration and motivation for runners of all types and abilities, as he wants to be a beacon of hope for others diagnosed with heart disease as he continues running for his life.
