You probably saw my tweet about it...

But if you did not catch it please check out the following link to a news article the NATIONAL BLOOD CLOT ALLIANCE posted on their website a couple of weeks ago...

This another alternative that will be available to people when treated for blood clotting episodes. Although this anticoagulant is currently only indicated for atrial fibrillation there is a good chance that eventually down the road it will be approved for other DVT/PE related indications as it is the case in other countries.

In the mean time do everything that you can to be aware of the sign of symptoms of potential blood clots. Ourselves are the first line of defense in combating clotting episodes. So, be on the look out!

October Athlete of the Month

October is one of my favorite months of the year.

Partly because fall is really taking hold of the season.

Partly because cinammon spice is again available for consumption... I also dig some pumpkin items but I am not as crazy about it as Mr. Clot Buster.

Partly because the swimming, the biking, and the running are less intense and I get to do whatever without really any structure.

Partly because European Soccer (Real Football) Leagues get finally under way and I get to follow my beloved teams.

And Partly because the IRONMAN WorldChampionships are in play the second weekend of the month. How I wish that I was good enough to some day do that race... For now I'll put that away in the "IN YOUR DREAMS" box...

However, I wanted to take this month's ATHLETE OF THE MONTH post to celebrate those I know who have completed or soon will complete and IRONMAN race and that are of course blood clot survivors!

I wish that I knew someone that is in Kona, HI right now who is about to race the IM World Championships... how cool would it be to follow that person? I am not that fortunate this year but I am sure there is someone racing tomorrow who has had a blood clot and it is survivor like all of the Athlete of the Month folks I've been able to write about.

So, let's remember and celebrate those that I have written about as OCTOBER's ATHLETE OF THE MONTH!

DEIDRE CALLAHAN - November 2008 - IRONMAN Lake Placid 2005

KRISTOFFER PERRY - October 2009 - IRONMAN Wisconsin 2009

MARTI BUSEKRUS - March 2010 - IRONMAN Florida 2010

My goal is to someday have a long list of people I could celebrate in October as finishers of IRONMAN events. However, any event is a tremendous accomplishment for someone returning to "normal" life after a clotting incident.

I am alawys inspired by what people can achieve with determination and inspiration.
