Mark was an active athlete who began experiencing increasing amounts of fatigue with exercise. An evaluation showed his aortic valve which was less flexible than it should be, and it reduced the amount of oxygen filled blood to his exercising muscles. He was faced with many decisions about surgery, replacement options, lifelong medication possibilities and whether or not he could return to endurance sports safely. After making his decision, full of all the potential risks of heart surgery including a poor outcome (or death!), Mark resumed his training and thrived in the pool. He continued to face decisions about his heart condition, guided by his love for being active. After decades of training and competing as an athlete, Mark decided he'd like to help give back to the sport of swimming that he is so devoted to. He became a USA Swimming official, putting his time in (with love) working at local youth meets, and working his way up to higher and higher stakes. He's now an in demand official at Swimming meets of the highest caliber and has worked meets with the swimming superstars of the decade including Katie Ledecky and Caleb Dressel. Mark continues to comlete in masters swimming events and even in his 60s continues to work on perfecting his butterfly! Tune in to be inspired by his story, learn from his upbeat and optimistic attitude, hear his favorite swim workouts and more.

That wrecked my body literally. Haven’t had the ability to train with any intensity or endurance since that point. Now I simply run and exercise for fitness, fun and therapy."
