Feature story: Second chance at life
Ken Byk sits with his dog Riley. Byk turned 52 last April and ran San Francisco's Bay to Breakers 12K race two weeks later. Over the years he'd completed numerous charity runs and was fit and athletic. Moments after crossing the finishing line, he suffered a major heart attack. Photo by Vivian Wong/Palo Alto Online.
